Ingredients:  
2 c 1/2-inch cubes cooked ham (can also use 8 slices of cooked bacon, crumbled, or about 2 c cooked and sliced Italian link sausage)
1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes in juice, drained
1 15-ounce can of each of these beans:
* pork and beans, rinsed, drained (can substitute dark red kidney beans, these actually work better in a crockpot as pork and beans tend to get mushy)
* black beans, rinsed, drained

* pinto beans, rinsed, drained
1 large sweet (Vidalia) onion, chopped
1 large red bell pepper, chopped (optional)
1 large green bell pepper, chopped (optional)

Directions:
Place all ingredients in heavy large pot (note: adjust the curry and cayenne, depending upon how spicy you want the beans to be). Bring everything to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring about 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves*. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered until juices are thick, stirring gently and frequently to prevent burning, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Personal Notes:
*You can also bring the pot to a boil on the stove, then place all in a crockpot and cook on low 2-4 hours. Do not cook on high setting, or longer than a few hours, or the beans will get mushy.

Top each bowl of beans with shredded cheddar cheese and serve with crusty sourdough bread.
