Black-Eyed Peas with a Kick
Dried peas and beans are perfect for slow cooking. Because they're cooked over a long time, they really soak up flavors from the other ingredients.
What You'll Need:
1 (16-ounce) package dried black-eyed peas
2 cups hot water
1 (10-ounce) bag frozen seasoning blend, thawed
1 teaspoon prepared minced garlic
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon crushed red pepper
teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
- Sort and wash peas; place in a 5-quart slow cooker. Cover with water 2 inches above peas; let soak 8 hours. Drain and return peas to slow cooker.
- Combine butter and remaining ingredients in slow cooker.
- Cover and cook on HIGH setting 4 hours or until desired degree of doneness.
