Serves: 10-12
  • 1 lb pink beans, soaked overnight
  • 1 meaty ham bone or 3 smoked ham hocks
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp marjoram
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ½ tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 15 oz can Mexican stewed tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup white wine (I use Rossi Chablis)
  1. Place ham bone in large crock pot along with beans.
  2. Fill with water until beans are just covered.
  3. Cover, set on "high" and cook one hour.
  4. Meanwhile, in a frying pan, sauté onion, garlic, and bell pepper in olive oil until onion is translucent. Add herbs, chili powder and pepper just to heat through.
  5. To the crock pot, add onion mixture along with the remaining ingredients. Stir, cover and reduce to "low" cooking another 6 hours or until the meat is falling off the bone.
