Start off by cooking your bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until the bacon is near done and add the onion, tomatoes, bell pepper, and the garlic to the pan and cook until your vegetables are just done but not browned.

Now add all your ingredients to a six quart slow cooker or crock pot and cook on medium for at least six hours. Stir about every hour from the bottom up. In about six hours your beans should be perfect and you'll want to remove the bay leaf and discard it.
