Turned out great even though I had to make substitutions because I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand. No bouillon and only had one can of chicken broth, so I replaced 2 c. of water with a can of broth. Subbed thickly sliced carrots for bell pepper. I'm not sure the bell peppers would have made it through an overnight cooking anyway. Subbed jarred jalapenos for fresh. Used hog jowl instead of bacon. (I have never had hog jowl "on hand." Someone told me it was part of the New Year's tradition. Not sure what part of the pig it is, but it was tasty.) :) Put that in the slow cooker on low the night before (beans were not pre-soaked) and had it for lunch the next day with cornbread. Added several handfuls of chopped kale about 20 minutes before serving. My husband added pepper vinegar because he likes things spicier than the rest of us.
