This is the perfect New Year's Day lunch. The broth it makes is so tasty you will want it throughout the year. It doesn't get any easier than this just put everything in the Crock Pot and wait till done.

What a great way to ring in the New Year with a super easy Crock Pot meal! This obviously has your traditional black-eyed peas and cabbage, but it is also delicious. We used black-eyed peas with jalapenos and it added a little kick to the dish. The lil' smokies add slight smokiness and make it hearty. Served with cornbread as Robin suggests, this is quite the New Year's Day meal.
