Today I'm posting Mexican Ham,Diabetic recipe. This is a little different from most ham recipes. This is still very good. Very good served with tortillas and re fried beans, (low fat), or you can use your own imagination. I like Mexican food, except a lot of it is full of carbs and fat. Give this a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
