Crockpot cowpeas are easy, delicious, and can be made on the stovetop. Our family has a long tradition of serving black-eyed beans on New Year’s Day. Serving this dish with cabbage is said to bring good luck and wealth. Soup made with fresh garden vegetables is also perfect for summer and autumn. This is a great comfort food and is always delicious served in a recipe for fried cornbread hawcakes.
Ingredients needed for Crockpot Black-eyed Peas:
Dried black soybeans (canned black soybeans are also acceptable)
chicken stock soup
1 cup ham hock or diced cooked ham
diced tomato (optional)
Chopped okra (optional) (frozen okra works too)
salt and pepper to taste
If you’re making this with canned black-eyed peas, you don’t need to cover the peas with water once they’re in the cooking pot. You can add a can, but if you want it thicker, use canned peas.
Bacon can always be substituted for ham. We always eat country ham on Christmas and make this on New Year’s Day using leftovers.
You can also make it in a pot on the stove. Keep the cooking time short until the black-eyed peas are tender.
This alone makes for a meal with cornbread. You can also serve this over rice. Check out my cornbread muffin recipe.You will love this delicacy too Black eyed bean casserole!

Serving: 6 serving
- 1 16 oz bag dried cowpeas (canned cowpeas can be used)
- 1 16 ounce can of chicken soup
- 1 1 cup ham hock or diced ham for cooking
- 1 cloves minced garlic
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1 mini onions chopped
- 1 16 ounce can diced tomatoes (optional)
- 1 16 oz can of chopped okra (optional) (you can use frozen okra)
- salt and pepper to taste
Rinse the peas and add enough water to cover all the ingredients. Add chicken broth, ham, garlic, celery, onion, salt, and pepper. (If you just want black-eyed peas, stop recipe here and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 7 hours, or until peas and celery are cooked through).
Adding tomatoes and okra in the middle makes the recipe look like Hoppin’ John. Keep the cooking time short until the black-eyed peas are tender.
