“My grandma always made Hoppin' John on New Year's Day when I was growing up in Virginia. I now live in New Mexico and decided to put a hot Southwestern spin on the recipe this year, hence the name. It's simple and tasty, and has some heat. I only added two jalapenos, but you could add more if you like it hotter. If you don't like hot food, you might want to eliminate the jalapenos completely. My husband and I both loved it.”

Whole family liked it. Since they don't enjoy super hot, subbed small can of mild green chilies for jalapenos and can of regular diced tomatoes for Rotel. Thanks!

It doesn’t get better than this a simple recipe that tastes great and is healthy! I used green peppers and a can of regular diced tomatoes because that’s what I had and omitted the bacon to make it vegetarian. I also used canned Embasa brand jalapenos escabeche that have carrots and onions in it. The carrots added a wonderful color and taste! Thank you for sharing this recipe and I love the name change!

Loved it!! Didn't change anything. Saved the juice from the drained Habaneros to add some salt and viniger and use for hot sauce later.
