    6 slices bacon, diced
    1 tablespoon margarine

    1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped
    3/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper or to taste
    2 cups canned tomatoes, diced
    1 1/2 pounds cabbage, chopped

    Cook bacon in a large heavy saucepan until brown and crisp. Add margarine and onion. Cook over medium heat until onions are translucent. Add green pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes more.

    Add cayenne; stir well. Add cabbage and tomatoes; mix well. (Mixture will seem dry.) Cook slowly over medium heat, about 30 minutes or until cabbage is tender. Do not overcook.
