Method: Wash and pick over the beans and put in a sauce pan with water to cover and simmer for 45 minutes. In a skillet, put the ham and onions over medium heat until the onions are wilted. When the beans are tender but not yet fully cooked, add remaining ingredients, adding water if necessary and simmer covered for 20 minutes or until both rice and beans are cooked.
