Happy New Year . . . A Little Late
Another year, another pot of black eyed peas to welcome the calendar change. For 2012 I went crock pot lazy and allowed a spicy black eyed bean and sausage stew to bubble along all day. Into the pot went a coarsely chopped onion, jalapenos, crushed red peppers, garlic, a smoked ham hock (left over from a whole Jamon Serrano), fresh black eyed peas, seared spicy Italian sausage, parsley, chicken broth and canned tomatoes. I left it on low all day and when dinner came around served James' spicy stew (no hot sauce needed) over rice. Happy New Year.
