1combine all ingredients in crockpot. set on low-med for all night.
2should be ready for the next day to take to a function. or if you want it for that evening start it at 6 or 7 am and let it cook til about 5pm. this way all flavors absorbe one another. don't chop onions and bell pepper together, you want to taste them seperately from one another.
3if u like you can put in a small jar of sweet pimentoes.
