NEW YEAR'S DAY BLACK-EYED PEAS

 

Black-Eyed Peas

IngredientS

  • 1 # Bacon cut into ¼” strips
  • 2 (12oz) bags frozen Black-eyed Peas
  • Chicken Stock
    • 2 tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken Base
    • 2 cups Hot Water
  • 1 TBS Christopher Ranch Crushed Garlic
  • 6-8 oz chopped Collard Greens
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 2 TBS Olive Oil
  • 1 TBS Golden Toad Prime Steak Rub
  • 2 tsp Golden Toad Chipotle Pepper Sauce
  • ½ tsp Smoked Sweet Spanish Paprika
  • For serving
    • Pepper Jack Cheese, grated
    • ¼ Cup Fresh Cilantro, chopped

Preparation

  • Pre-heat Oven to 350°.
  • On stovetop, use a 5qt Dutch Oven to cook bacon over Medium-High heat. Cook bacon until browned but not too crispy.
  • While bacon is cooking, heat up Water and Chicken Base (microwave water to a boil and stir in Chicken Base) and set aside.
  • Remove Bacon from Dutch Oven and set on paper towels. Remove most of the bacon fat. I leave a little for cooking the onions.
  • Add Onion and 1 TBS Olive Oil to Dutch Oven and sauté until edges just start to brown.
  • Add the remaining 1 TBS Olive Oil to Onions and stir to heat up.
  • Add Paprika and Garlic and stir constantly for 5-10 seconds. Do not burn these two ingredients! Stir constantly.
  • Return Bacon to Dutch Oven and add the rest of the ingredients except the Pepper Jack Cheese and Cilantro. Stir together, cover, and place in oven for about 2 hrs until peas are cooked to your liking.
  • Serve topped with grated Pepper Jack Cheese and Chopped Cilantro.

    Enjoy!

    Best wishes for a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year!
