Black-Eyed Pea Stew with Sausage and Kale is a hearty, cold weather meal. Serve with some cornbread to mop up the delicious-tasting stew.
Everything is cooked in one pot, making clean-up easy. A very good thing during the busy holiday season! Leftovers taste even better as the flavors develop over time.
A combination of smoked sausage and bacon gives this Black-Eyed Pea Stew tons of smoky flavor. I like to use a spicy Andouille sausage, but you could also use kielbasa.
The most important ingredient in this stew is the chicken broth. You want to use one with a substantial flavor since it forms the base of the stew. I prefer to use College Inn Broth. College Inn Broth is made with only the highest quality ingredients. Natural chicken, farm-fresh vegetables and the most flavorful herbs and spices are slow simmered for a deeper, richer broth.
Because College Inn Broth is so wonderfully flavored, it saves you steps in the kitchen.
Note: You can switch out the kale for collard greens and you have a great New Year’s recipe for bringing good luck in the New Year.
This full-flavored, spicy Black-Eyed Pea Stew with Sausage and Kale is the perfect way to heat up a cold night. Don’t forget the cornbread! And to make it even spicier, serve with some pepper sauce.
