Smoky, Spicy Black-Eyed Peas

Standard

IMG_3011Happy New Year! ┬áThis year’s black-eyed pea recipe is my favorite so far…and the easiest, as it spent all day in the slow cooker. The smoked turkey leg added a ton of flavor and made this dish more of a meal. Here’s to a fantastic 2015. Cheers!

Smoky & Spicy Black-Eyed Peas (Adapted from myrecipes.com)

3 cups fresh shelled black-eyed peas

1 large onion, diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

1-2 jalepenos, minced

2 cups turkey (or chicken) broth

1 smoked turkey leg (about 12 oz)

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/4 tsp salt

Fresh ground pepper to taste

1 bay leaf

Hot sauce

IMG_3017Place everything except hot sauce in the slow cooker and stir well to combine. Set the slow cooker on low for 7-8 hours. Stir to break apart turkey meat, then remove the bone and bay leaf. Serve with hot sauce and enjoy lots of good luck in the New Year!
