Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and celery; cook and stir until translucent, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Scoop vegetables into a slow cooker.

  • Place sausage in the same skillet. Cook, breaking apart with a wooden spoon, until browned, 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker; pour in black-eyed peas and diced tomatoes with green chiles.

  • Cook on Low until black-eyed peas are tender, about 16 hours.

Cook's Notes:

You can use hot sausage to make this dish spicier or regular sausage for more flavor.

You can use mild or hot tomato-green chile mix instead of plain.

You can also cook the dip on Medium for 8 hours instead of on Low for 16 hours. The longer you cook them the better they will be but you can eat as soon as the peas are tender.
