  • 1 pound black eyed peas
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/2 cup chopped Canadian Bacon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 chicken or beef bouillon cube
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 bay leaf


1. Combine all the ingredients in your slow cooker. Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 5-6 hours, until the beans are tender.

Note: The beauty of this recipe is that the beans do not need to be pre-soaked!
Note: You can use 6 cups of chicken stock instead of the water and bouillon cube if you prefer.
Note: If you want it to turn out more like soup cook in 7 cups of water. For a thicker stew cook in 5 cups of water.
