  • 12 ounces dried black-eyed peas
  • 1 (14- to 16-oz.) smoked ham hock
  • 3 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cups chopped leeks (about 2 medium)
  • ½ teaspoon salt

  5. Remove the hock, let cool slightly. Remove the meat from the bone, discarding the skin, fat, and bone. Chop the meat.
  6. Add the meat to the pea mixture. Top with green onions and hot sauce, if desired. Serve.
