ingredients

1 pound red kidney beans
1 large onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bay leaf
1 pork ham bone
salt, to taste
cayenne, to taste
black pepper, to taste
water
1 pound smoked sausage cut in inch pieces
cooked rice

directions

Rinse beans; place into crockpot along with onions, bell pepper, garlic, ham bone, and bay leaf. Pour enough water in the crock-pot so water is 2 to 3 inches above the beans. Cook on LOW for 8-10 hours.

Smash 1/3 of the beans to thicken, remove bay leaf, add smoked sausage, and cook for additional 30-60 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve hot over cooked rice.

The only change I made was to cook some andouille and use that instead of the smoked sausage. After 5 hours it was almost done so I turned it to low and let it cook another hour and then it was good.
