  1. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute turkey, onions, and garlic in the butter until turkey is no longer pink, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. While turkey is cooking, combine chile peppers, cumin, oregano, salt, and cayenne in a slow cooker set to Low. Stir in hominy and 1 can black-eyed peas. Mash the other can of black-eyed peas with a fork and stir into the slow cooker along with the chicken broth. Stir in sauteed turkey and onions.
  3. Cook on Low until flavors combine, about 4 hours. Add cilantro just before serving.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute chicken if you are not a turkey fan.
  • I add some cornstarch to help thicken it like chili. Adding more mash helps as well.
