Crock-Pot Hoppin’ John
Down in the south it is a yearly tradition to serve a big bowl of Hoppin’ John as the first thing that you eat on New Years Day. The tradition says that it will guarantee a prosperous year and bring good luck!
This easy and frugal stew is made up with black-eyed peas, a smoked ham hock, onions, bell pepper and few other choice herbs and spices and is normally served with rice. You can either spoon the stew over cooked white or brown rice or mix the cooked rice into the stew. I prefer it mixed together.
Served with corn bread for sopping up the yummy bean liquor (that is bean juice) and some collard greens this southern classic is perfect for bringing in the new year or just serving any day when you need a simple yet tasty dish for dinner!
