Slow Cooker Hoppin John

One tradition here in the United States is to have black eyed peas for New Years day. To me it is more than a tradition it is a must have. The legend behind having black eyed peas on New Years is that they welcome in good luck in the new year.

1 lb smoked sausage, sliced
4 (15-oz) cans black-eyed peas, undrained
2 (10-oz) cans diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
3 cups beef broth
1 cup finely chopped onion
3/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
2 tsp Cajun/Creole seasoning
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 family-size package boil-in-bag rice, uncooked (about 1-1/2 cups uncooked)

Cook sausage in a large skillet until browned, about 5 minutes. (You can skip this step and the dish will be fine.)
Place sausage in slow cooker. Add black eyed peas, diced tomatoes and green chiles, beef broth, onion, bell pepper, cajun seasoning, garlic, and black pepper. Cover and cook on LOW for 6 hours.
Pour uncooked rice into slow cooker. Stir. Cover and cook on HIGH for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender.
*You may need to add water if the mixture is too thick.*
