Black-eyed pea time is right around the corner,
That’s it folks.
My black eyed pea job is done.
Because my husband takes over from here.
I am going to now reveal his black-eyed pea
He prepares them in the same way he makes
frijoles a la charra or pinto beans.
New’s Year Day I go back on duty
and make cornbread and heat up the ham.
In a skillet, saute 1 large chopped onion and cut pieces of bacon.
Add minced garlic.
Once the onions are translucent, set aside.
In a soup pan , cover 2 lbs. of dried peas with water
and bring them to a boil.
Boil for a few minutes and then remove them from the heat.
Let them sit a few minutes.
Drain off the water and add fresh water.
Add the onion, bacon, and garlic and add an extra chopped onion .
Cook until tender adding just a sprinkle of chili powder and chopped cilantro
at the end.
I know this is a vague recipe, but trust me- I had questioned my husband all I could!
Happy New Year!
