Black Eyed Pea and Sausage Stew

Eating Black Eyed Peas for New Years is a southern tradition.  According to Southern Folklore, the first food eaten on New Year’s Day  should be black eyed peas for luck and prosperity.  My sister makes this recipe every New Years and we aren’t sure if it is a soup or a stew.  She doubles the recipe and cooks it in a crockpot.  I don’t normally like Black Eyed Peas, but I love this!

1 pkg Smoked Kielbasa Sausage, sliced

2 15 oz can green beans, drained

2 15 oz black eyed peas, drained

1/2 cup chopped onion

8 – 10  New Potatoes, cubed

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1 15 oz can beef broth

Combine all the ingredients in a crockpot.  Cook on high for several hours until the potatoes are tender and the soup/stew is thickened.
