Refried Black-Eyed Peas

Ingredients
1
tablespoon bacon drippings
1/2
cup finely chopped onion
1/4
cup finely chopped bacon or pancetta
1
clove garlic
1
dried chile de arbol
8
ounces dried black-eyed peas (about 1 cup)
3 1/2
cups chicken stock
1/4
teaspoon kosher salt
1
teaspoon ground cumin
1
teaspoon chili powder
2
tablespoons olive oil
1/4
cup crumbled queso blanco
 
Snipped fresh cilantro, optional

Directions

  1. In a medium-sized pan warm bacon fat over medium heat. Add onion and bacon. Cook about 10 minutes. Add garlic, chile pepper, and peas. Pour enough stock to cover. Increase heat; bring to boiling. Reduce heat to barely simmering. Cook 45 minutes to 1 hour, until peas are tender. Add salt, cumin, and chili powder. Cool in pan. Transfer to a clean container. Refrigerate 1 hour. If desired, remove and discard chile de arbol.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. For refried peas, in 8-inch cast iron skillet heat oil over medium-high. Mash peas with fork. Add to hot skillet. Reduce heat to medium; stir occasionally until hot. Top with cheese. Transfer skillet to oven. Bake 20 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve warm. Makes 8 servings.

If needed, additional chicken stock may be added while mashing to reach a smoother consistency.
