  • 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.

I'm a little torn on how to rate this. As written, this is not what I would call a dip but a soup. The flavor is good but I think serving it in a bowl with cornbread would suit it better than trying to serve it as a dip with chips. The recipe also calls to cook it for 16 hours or until the peas are tender. They are coming from a can and already tender so 16 hours is overkill. The sausage gets cooked beforehand so really the only thing that needs cooked until tender is the onion and celery. After that it is just heating it all together long enough for the flavors to combine. Overall good flavor but execution needs tweaked. Read More
