It is New Years Eve, y’all! I have my “Spicy Black-eyed Peas” ready for tomorrow. It is a Southern tradition, and a very delicious one too.Why? Because the peas are supposed to bring you luck and prosperity in the New Year. If you add any kind of greens to the peas, the peas are supposed to represent coins of money and the greens, paper money, meaning that you will be granted financial prosperity. What do you think? I am not at all superstitious but I like the fun in it, plus, they are delicious so, Why not?
I prepared my black-eyed peas with dice onions, garlic, tomatoes and spinach. I wanted to give a little kick to the beans so In addition to salt and pepper I added chili powder and cayenne pepper. I don’t know if they will bring me financial prosperity but I’m sure I will enjoy every single pea in this bowl.
