  • 1 quart water

Directions:

Sauté onions, celery and bell pepper in margarine; until wilted. Add cubed ham and tomato sauce, simmer 15-20 minutes. Bring Trappey’s Navy Beans with bacon to a boil; cream beans (a blender works well). Combine beans with ham mixture. Add water and seasonings. Boil for one (1) hour.
