2 cans of El Paso Garbanzo Beans
1 16-oz can of whole tomatoes or 6 home grown tomatoes
6 to 8 white potatoes cut bite size
1 bermuda onion chopped
2 green peppers cut bite-size
1 lb. bacon cut bite size
2 cups chopped ham cut bite size
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon sweet basil
1/2 to 3/4 tablespoon chili powder or red pepper to taste
Throw in a few bay leaves
Salt & Pepper to taste

Let all of this simmer in a big pot, perhaps a crock pot, for 4 to 5 hours.  Water can be added if you feel it is not producing enough of its own juices.  Remember, the longer it simmers, the better "dew" it will have on it!  Happy eating!
