This recipe is delicious! My entire family loved it. I prefer to use Jasmine rice in this recipe. It works perfectly. --It is great in the summer as a side or to eat on New Years Day.

Hoppin' John always combines black-eyed peas and rice. Although eating it on New Year's Day is said to bring good luck, it's a beloved side dish year-round.
