It is good luck to eat black eyed peas on New Years day. Its a southern thang. I need all the luck I can find so here's a way you eat them if you like the flavor as little as I do.
One can black eyed peas. (drained)
One cup frozen corn. (thawed)
One quarter onion. (chopped)
Two garlic cloves. (minced)
Two strips bacon. (Ummm...Bacon)
One half tea spoon red pepper flakes. (crushed)
One cup salsa.
Mince the garlic, chop the onion and fry them in a skillet with the chopped bacon until the bacon is crisp.
Add corn, drained black eyed peas, salsa and pepper flakes.
Heat to boil and simmer for 10 minutes.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Some chopped jalapeno would make it even nicer....
