Andrea’s Answer To maybe a little luck for the New Year?

I have been looking for a recipe the last few years with black eyed peas and ironically have had no luck .  But this year, this year I finally got it right!  I was searching Google and Pinterest when I came across Quick Hoppin’ John Soup on  It was a hit!! Even my daughter who is not a soup eater ate some.  My son?  He had two bowls.   I made it without the pork sausage because someone used it for breakfast that morning! I won’t complain though because my husband usually always makes breakfast on the weekends and it’s nice to get a break from doing all the cooking.   I also only used one can of tomatoes because I’m the only one who really loves tomatoes in this house and in my opinion one was definitely enough.


Quick Hoppin’ John Soup

1 pound sage pork sausage
1 (6 ounce) package uncooked long grain
and wild rice mix, with seasoning packet
2 (15 ounce) cans black-eyed peas,
2 (14.5 ounce) cans diced tomatoes, with
2 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth
2 cups water
salt to taste
Crumble sausage into a skillet over medium heat and cook until evenly brown.  In a large pot, mix the cooked sausage, rice mix with seasoning packet, black-eyed peas, tomatoes, broth and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes, or until rice is tender. Season to taste with salt.
Give it a try and tell me what you think!  Happy New Year!
