Directions:
Wash beans. Cover in cold water and soak overnight. Sauté onion, bell pepper, garlic and sausage until lightly browned. Add beans, with the water in which they were soaked, ham bone, and more water to cover ingredients. Add bay leaf and red & black pepper to taste (I am pretty cautious with the cayenne--1 or 2 small shakes is about enough.) Cook over low heat until beans are tender, about 2 hours. OR cook in crockpot on HI for 4 hours, then turn to Low for 3-4 hours. Serve over hot rice. Serves 8,

Personal Notes:
I picked up this authentic recipe in New Orleans a few years ago. You can make it vegetarian too, just leave out the sausage and ham bone, and replace the extra water with vegetable broth. It's just as tasty and a little lighter.
