Quick Hoppin' John with Bacon
Prep: 5 min, Cook: 15 min.
  • 4 slices of bacon, coarsely chopped
  • 1-1/4 onions, chopped
  • 3/4 celery rib, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1-1/4 lbs. canned black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1-1/4 cups instant rice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup chicken stock

Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Sauté bacon about 5 minutes, stirring frequently until browned and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 tsp. drippings. Add onions, celery and garlic to bacon drippings and sauté about 3 minutes, until just softened. Add beans, rice, water and stock. Season with salt and pepper to taste and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover pan, remove from heat and let stand about 5 minutes, until rice is tender. Serve with bacon pieces and pepper sauce.
