Slow Cooked Black Eyed Peas with Ham

I made this yesterday for our New Years Day meal.  It was very good!  A bit spicy, which I like.

8 oz smoked lean ham steak, diced (or a ham bone, which is what I used)

1 pound dried black-eyed peas, rinsed and soaked overnight

2 bay leaves

1 tsp olive oil

1 onion, diced

2 cloves garlic, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1 jalapeno, seeded and minced

1 tomato, diced

1/2 tsp chili powder ( I used chipotle)

1 1/2 tsp cumin

1 tsp pepper

salt to taste

Soak peas overnight in 6 cups of water.  The next morning, drain peas and add to slow cooker.  Add 4 cups of water, bay leaves and ham.  Cover and cook on high 6 hours or until the beans are tender.

After 6 hours, in a large frying pan, add oil and saute onion, garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, and tomato until soft, about 6 minutes.  Add to the slow cooker and season black-eyed peas generously with salt, cumin, chili powder and black pepper.  Cover and cook on high 1 to 1 1/2 more hours.  Discard bay leaves and serve.

Yields 8 servings of 1 cup each for 3 pts or 4 pts +
