I couldn't find a Hoppin' John recipe I really cared for, so I threw this together to enjoy black-eyed peas for New Year's.

Ingredients

  • ½ pound bulk pork sausage

  • 1 stalk celery, sliced

  • 1 small onion, chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ red bell pepper, diced

  • ¾ cup brown and wild rice mix

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice

  • 2 ⅓ cups chicken stock

  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, or more to taste

  • salt to taste

  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Cook and stir sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is still slightly pink, about 8 minutes. Mix celery and onion into sausage; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 more minutes. Stir garlic and red bell pepper into sausage mixture and cook until bell pepper is slightly soft, about 5 minutes.

  2. Stir brown and wild rice mix, black-eyed peas, tomatoes with their juice, chicken stock, and Cajun seasoning into sausage and vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover; simmer 45 minutes. Remove cover, raise heat to medium-low, and simmer until stew is thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and cracked black pepper.
