Delicious and easy! I omitted the ham and next time will only use one splash of hot sauce instead of 3 - was a little spicy. Tastes like what they serve in the mexican restaurants.

My husband loved it! When I make it again, and I will, I will make it milder somehow because it was too spicy-hot for those in my family who do not enjoy spicy food. Thank you for posting a quick and easy frijoles recipe that tastes delicious and makes my house smell wonderful!

I've doubled, tripled, even quadrupled this recipe many times for my family and for large groups. I'm able to buy the really large cans of pinto beans and Rotel tomatoes where I live, which makes it easier. It's always a hit! I've never added the ham. I make a pot almost every week and they may be eaten refried alongside eggs in the morning (wonderful!!!), taken in small containers along with a tortilla at lunch, or eaten with tri-tip for dinner. I'm sure they can be jazzed up a little or substitutions made in the ingredients, but they are yummy just the way the recipe is written.

These are so easy to make and so tasty. Gave them a fairly healthy shot of Trader Joe's Chili Pepper Sauce, and they had just the right amount of heat for us. Followed the recipe except for the simmering time. I don't think an hour is necessary for the flavors to develop. The beans, tomatoes, and ham all are cooked, and I found about 15-20 minutes was plenty of time. Thanks, Nancy, this was a nice side dish.
