New Years Lucky Hoppin’ John Recipe

INGREDIENTS
1 pound dried black-eyed peas
1 small smoked ham hock (about 1/2 pound)
2 bay leaves
2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
10 cups water
1/2 pound fresh spicy chorizo sausage
 or spicy Italian sausage
1 cup rice
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sliced scallions (6 to 7)
1 large red bell pepper, diced

DIRECTIONS
1. Soak the black-eyed peas overnight in water to cover by 2 inches. Drain well.
2. In a large pot, combine the drained black-eyed peas, ham hock, bay leaves, garlic and water.
Bring to a boil, reduce to a high simmer, partially cover and cook until the peas are almost
tender, about 45 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, prick the chorizos in several places with the tines of a fork. Fill a medium skillet with
about 1/8 inch of water. Add the sausages and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook the
chorizos until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Set them aside and discard the cooking juices.
When cool enough to handle, cut the sausages into 1/2-inch dice.
4. Add the chorizos, rice and salt to the pot, re-cover and cook until the rice is tender, about
20 minutes. Stir in the scallions and bell pepper about 10 minutes before the rice is done. If
desired, pull off any meat from the ham hocks and add to the pot. Discard the bay leaves.
