I can't get my head around the idea of eating black eyed peas for good luck - but I think I'd eat this bean dish!

I made this earlier this fall and added a little ditalini (macaroni noodles cut into thirds) to it, we loved it. We will have pork and sauerkraut on NY day and shrimp on NY eve. Happy new Year to you!

Oh, this does look good! About how many servings does it make?

Christine said...

This looks sooo good!
I probably would add a bigger dallop of sour cream - LOL

Happy New Year!

I love taco soup. Thanks for the reminder to make a batch!
Happy New Year!

This looks simpler and probably even better than my taco soup recipe!

I will try yours.

We had regular old black eyed peas yesterday. I sure hope it does bring me luck. We had collards for "money luck" too. That's probably why I never have any money luck. I wouldn't eat a collard for a million bucks...

Happy New Year!

Yum! I grew up with a father from Texas who always at Black Eyed Peas for New Years. A sign of good luck. He's 92 and healthy so I guess that luck is holding out.
