1 medium onion chopped
2 medium russet potatoes cubed
1 14 ounce can diced tomatoes
48 ounces low sodium chicken broth
1 14 ounce can light kidney beans drained and rinsed
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)


Rinse the ham under running water to remove as much of any sugary coating as possible

Chop two peeled potatoes, two peeled carrots, a medium onion and two stalks of celery
Feel free to vary the veggies
Rinse one can of beans (light kidney beans)
In a large crock pot combine 48 ounces of low sodium chicken broth, 1 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, and optional 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Add the rinsed beans and the veggies
Add the ham bone and cook for 8 hours on low
With one hour left in the cooking, remove the bone and strip of meat
Return the meat to slow cooker
Finish the 8 hour total cooking
You may now serve or refrigerate overnight and scrape off any solidified fat
