Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 ham hock
  • 1 pound dried calypso beans (or black-eyed peas), soaked overnight and drained
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 3 canned chipotle peppers in adobe sauce
  • 4 poblano chiles, roasted, seeded and chopped
  • 4 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lime wedges, for garnish

Directions

In a large pot over medium-high heat add olive oil. When the oil is hot add the onion, garlic, bay leaf, and ham hock; cook for 5 minutes. Add the beans and stir in the cumin, chipotles, chiles, tomatoes, and cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Pour in enough water to cover the beans by 1-inch and bring it to a boil. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until the beans are tender, about 1 hour. Remove the bay leaf and discard; pick the meat from the ham hock, discard the bone, and return the meat to the pot. Taste it and adjust the seasoning. Serve with lime wedges for garnish.
