Place meaty ham bone in a large crockpot. Add chicken broth, water, onion, celery, bay leaves, and Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning.
Cook for 4-6 hours on high, or 8-10 hours on low.
Remove ham bone. When cool enough to handle, cut meat off the bone and coarsely chop into bite size pieces. Discard bone and return chopped ham to crockpot.
Add kidney beans, sausage, shredded carrots, and chopped green pepper to the crockpot and stir.
Cook another 1 hour on high setting.
Cook rice on stovetop or in rice cooker.
Remove bay leaves.
Serve in bowls over hot, cooked rice. Season to taste with salt and pepper, extra Tony Chachere's Original Creole Seasoning, or tabasco sauce.
