Crockpot Black Eyed Peas

Have you ever made black eyed peas before?
Here's my recipe for making them using dried black eyed peas.

Black eyed peas on a bed of brown rice garnished with
pear slices. Tasty!

Recipe here...

Step 1) Rinse, sort and wash peas.
I usually cook up 8 oz-1 pound at a time and freeze the extra.

Step 2) Soak peas overnight in cold water. I soaked these for 12 hours.

Step 3) Rinse and wash peas again after overnight soak.

Step 4) Set crockpot on HIGH and add peas with mixture of fresh water & 1 can of beef broth.

Step 6) Use food chopper to mince 1 onion and 4-5 garlic cloves. Add to crock.

Step 7) Add rest of ingredients to crock. Sprinkle of chili powder, Adobo seasoning, and cumin.
Cook in crock for a few hours or until peas are tender.
Optional: Sprinkle the Spanish Rice Seasoning on peas after you dish it up.

RICE: I use Lundberg Organic Long Grain Brown Rice.
Replace water with Beef Broth.
