1Before you begin you will need to peel your tomatoes. This can be easily done by placing them in boiling water until the skins begin to break. I have used canned tomatoes instead of fresh tomatoes.
2In a 4 quart kettle or Dutch oven, cook the sausage and beef over medium heat, until the meat is no longer pink; drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set meat aside.
3Sauté onion, peppers and garlic in the reserved drippings for 3 minutes. Add the broth, Worchestershire sauce and seasonings; bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
4Add tomatoes, bacon, and browned sausage and beef; return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
5Add all of the beans. Simmer for one hour, stirring occasionally. Garnish with chopped onion if desired.
