Hoppin' John has been one of our New Year's Day traditions for a few years. It's the only thing we make consistently. This year I couldn't find my cookbook with our favorite recipe in it so I scrambled. It turned out good so I want to keep it here so I'll have it when I need it next year!
In a crockpot, combine the following:
* 4-5 cans black eyed peas
* 1 can mild Rotel
* 1 diced onion
* 1 pound sausage
* 1 can beef broth
Cook on low for 6 hours. Serve over rice.
