Blue Ribbon Recipe

Not only are these black-eyed peas good, but they're also very easy to make. Cooking the beans with the hambone is key to this recipe. It infuses flavor in the beans. Savory from the ham, these black-eyed peas have a little kick from the Rotel. The whole dish is flavorful. Serve with a slice of cornbread, for a delicious meal to ring in the new year. A great way to use your holiday hambone too.

Note: We used an 8qt slow cooker and our Crock Pot was very full. We suggest checking the slow cooker at 7 hours. We noticed the beans had soaked up a lot of liquid at the 7 hour mark. We added a bit of water at that point, shredded the ham, and put it back in the pot. Each slow cooker is different and our beans only took 1 hour more cooking. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

Ingredients

  • 2 lb
    dried black-eyed peas
  • 2 medium
    onions, chopped
  • 2 box
    chicken broth (32 oz each)
  • 2
    bay leaves
  • 1 can(s)
    Rotel original or flavor of your preference, I use Rotel with habaneros (10 oz)

    bite-sized chunks of ham (from the ham bone plus any extra you want to add)
  • 1 Tbsp
    garlic powder

How to Make Crock Pot Black-Eyed Peas & Ham

Step-by-Step

  1. Rinse peas. Drain and place in Crock Pot.
  2. Pour in chicken broth. Add water to bring the liquid just to the top of the peas.
  3. Bury the ham bone down into the peas. (If you don't have a bone I use chunks of ham and it works just as well.)
  4. Add the chopped onion, bay leaves, can of Rotel tomatoes, and garlic powder.
  5. Cover and set Crock Pot to low for 8 hrs.
  6. At that time, remove bone. Remove any meat from the bone. Cut into bite-sized pieces (you want about two cups total).
  7. Add ham to the Crock Pot. Recover and continue to cook for 2 more hours.
  8. Remove bay leaves. Serve with cornbread and enjoy!
  9. Note: If you do not use a ham bone and have only chunks of ham then just cook on low for 10 hrs and increase the amount of ham to about 3 cups.

    I use a 6 qt Crock Pot and it is full when all ingredients are added. If you are having trouble with room in the pot you can adjust the liquid to less.
