New Year’s Tradition

Black eyed peas. Let’s face it… they’re boring. So jazz ’em up a bit!

2 cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
2 cans Rotel diced tomatoes with chiles
1 can corn
2-3 jalapeno peppers, diced and seeded (to taste)
1/2 bunch cilantro, finely chopped (to taste, it can be quite strong)
8 oz. zesty Italian dressing

Dump it all in a pan and let simmer until your team wins (or loses). Works well with corn bread (baked in cast iron, of course).

    1) Black-eyed peas are only boring if you can’t cook 🙂
    2) Your recipe is stolen from Marisa Mclellans friend Jacqueline at Slashfood

    Where is the bacon- man- you can no cook the black-eyed peas without the bacon. Come on, I thought you of all people would realize that.
    Happy New Year!

    Actually, I didn’t get it from Slashfood, but I do see that it has been reprinted there. It’s shown up in a gazillion places and I apologize for the apparent theft of original material. I’ve actually been making it that way for a good while (minus the Italian dressing). I usually leave it on the stove for too long and have to turn it into soup.
