Black-Eyed Pea Parfaits for New Years Day

Black-Eyed Pea Parfaits

Black-eyed peas have long been a staple of Southern cooking, as well as a symbol of good luck. That’s why hoppin’ John, a dish made with black-eyed peas and rice, is standard New Year’s fare. Served with corn muffins, these make-your-own parfaits have all the key ingredients, plus one more — lots of kid appeal.

 

What you’ll need

  • 2 bacon strips, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups chopped red or green bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups fresh or frozen black-eyed peas
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
  • Sour cream and cherry tomatoes (for garnish)

How to make it

  1. In a medium saucepan, saute the bacon for 5 minutes. Stir in 1/2 cup of the bell pepper, the onion, the chopped tomato, the chili powder, the salt and pepper, and the black-eyed peas. Pour in the broth and bring the mixture to a low boil, then simmer it uncovered for 1 hour or more, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed.
  2. Layer the peas, rice, cheese, and remaining bell pepper in parfait glasses. Top with sour cream and a cherry tomato. Serves 6 to 8.
