  1. Cook and stir sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until meat is still slightly pink, about 8 minutes. Mix celery and onion into sausage; cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 more minutes. Stir garlic and red bell pepper into sausage mixture and cook until bell pepper is slightly soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir brown and wild rice mix, black-eyed peas, tomatoes with their juice, chicken stock, and Cajun seasoning into sausage and vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover; simmer 45 minutes. Remove cover, raise heat to medium-low, and simmer until stew is thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and cracked black pepper.

This is a wonderful rendition of Hoppin John! I've made this as the recipe directed for New Years Day, as per Southern Tradition. This dish is so yummy, it has the power for good luck AND for converting folks that do not like black-eyed peas! Thanks for a great recipe...

I pretty much followed the recipe as is, with the one exception of using quick cooking whole grain rice. It cut the cooking time down to about 15 minutes and it was great! My husband asked that I definitely keep this recipe around. Very easy and seems like a good recipe to try variations with to keep it fresh. I added the picture so others can see how good it looks!

This has become a family favorite. We usually crock-pot it. I added some left over ham last time and that added a nice flavor. I've shared it with a number of folks, who all are making it now!
