Great recipe. I added 4 slices of bacon, since it was the main course, and served it more in a bowl than a side dish. With corn bread it was a great supper. The cooking times were perfect, especially when your trying to serve fresh baked bread with it.

Good pot o'beans. I didn't do the 4 peppers, just used one very hot jalapeno. Corn bread was essential and the tomato was new for me in beans - I don't usually add tomato. It was a nice touch.

These beans are really good, but I used a can of Rotel tomatoes and chilies instead and a couple of minced garlic gloves. I cooked it all day in the crockpot and it was the main part of a wonderful meal in the evening after work!
