This black-eyed pea dish is traditionally served as the first meal on January 1, together with rice and cooked greens — and maybe you'd enjoy some baked sweet potatoes and corn muffins on the side?! This also makes a great holiday gift.



Mix ingredients together and package in a container. In 3 small, separate, labeled bags, put about 1 teaspoon each of garlic, chipotle powder and cumin. Give with a 28-ounce can of Muir Glen Fire-Roasted diced tomatoes.

Include these instructions with gift:
Put soup mix in a large pot with 4 cups of cold water and a 28-ounce can of diced tomatoes, including juice. Bring to a boil, stir once and reduce to low. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Salt and adjust spices to taste. Serve with cooked rice, if desired.
