Black-Eyed Peas with Pork & Greens
This boldly flavored spin on Hoppin' John replaces salt pork or bacon with lean pork chops. Plus we've added greens--in this case kale--a traditional accompaniment with the dish. Serve with cornbread and a glass of Spanish rioja.
Tip: Smoked paprika is a spice made from grinding smoke-dried red peppers. It's available in sweet, bittersweet and hot. Find it in the spice section of large supermarkets or at tienda.com.
