Food Love Thursdays and a Recipe

Thursday's will be food related but not always a recipe.  I am looking forward to sharing new appliances and tools that I have purchased, cookbooks, food companies and other blogs that have inspired me.

 I have seen a lot of black-eyed recipes on blogs the last couple of days and thought I would add my Spicy Black-eyed Peas and Ham recipe.

Our tradition is to have Black-eyed peas for New Years it is suppose to bring good luck to the new year.  I don't fix the same recipe every year with my Nueske's Christmas Ham I thought this would be delicious and it did not disappoint me.

Spicy Black-Eyed Peas and Ham

1 lb dried black-eyed peas
10 oz smoked ham, diced (I used Nueske's Best Ham by far)
1 onion, diced
1 cup sliced pickled jalapeños
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 1/2 tablespoons cajun seasonings

Rinse black-eyed peas, remove any stones, place in crock-pot. Add remaining ingredients and cook on low for 8 - 10 hours.  For less spicy cut the cajun seasonings 2 teaspoons and 1/4 cup jalapeños.
Serve with cornbread

Do you have any Food New Years Traditions?

Until Next Time,
