Slow-Cooker Ham and Beans

INGREDIENTS

1 lb dried beans, soaked overnight and cooked  (No, I really don’t care what sort of beans you use.  Use the beans you like)

1/2 lb cooked ham, chopped

1 onion, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

2 tomatoes, chopped

2 ribs of celery, chopped

4 cloves of garlic, whole

1 12 oz can of tomato paste

1 bunch of cilantro or parsley, chopped

2 T. light brown sugar

Salt

DIRECTIONS

1.  Mix the 12 oz can of tomato past with 24 oz of water (seriously – just dump it in the crock pot, then add three cans worth of water.  There’s no sense dirtying up a measuring cup).

2.  Place all the ingredients except the salt in the crockpot and set to “High”

3.  Cook for four hours.

4.  Salt to taste.

Serve with fresh bread
