Dutch Oven Special

Wayne cooked dinner for us once again. That's always a special treat! Note that for this recipe you need to plan in advance.

Dutch Oven Special 15 Beans with Ham

1 package 15 bean mix (with seasoning packet)
2 tablespoons salt
3 ham hocks and/or diced hame
1 large onion, chopped
1 large can tomatoes
1 teasopon chili pwder
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
pepper to taste

Rinse the beans, place in a pan and cover with water. Add the salt and let soak overnight. When you're ready to start cooking, drain them. Place in the Dutch oven and add 2 quarts of water. Add the ham hocks and let simmer for 2 to 2 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally. Add the remaining ingredients and let simmer 30-45 minutes until everything is cooked. Then stir in the seasoning packet and serve. It's pretty good plain, but it's even better if you top with some tortilla chips and grated cheese and bake for 15 minutes at 300° or until the cheese is melted.
We didn't count all the varieties, but we're assuming there are 15 different types of beans in this bowl.
