Visiting New Orleans in January I found the people to be very superstitious and traditional. They would never eat anything other than black-eyed peas and cabbage on New Years Day. Peas represent health and cabbage wealth.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add Andouille and cook until browned on both sides for about 5 minutes total. Transfer to a bowl. In the same skillet add onion and bell peppers and cook for 5 minutes, or until wilted. Add peas, chicken stock, Andouille, salt, and pepper and cook 5 minutes.
