Black Eyed Peas & Ham


1 pack of Creative Cajun Cooking’s Bean Magic Mix

2 pounds of dried Black Eyed Peas, rinsed and drained

10 Cups water

1-1/2 pound of cured ham, cubed

1 cup Green Onion Tops chopped for garnish

If using Smoked Sausage, slice and stir the sausage into the beans after they are cooked, just to heat up the sausage.


In a 6 quart or larger pressure cooker pot (such as Instant Pot), stir together beans, ham, water, and the pack of Bean Magic seasoning.

Cook on “Bean” setting for 55 minutes (or manually set for high pressure, 55 minutes), then do a natural pressure release after 15 minutes. Stir well. For a creamier consistency, smash a few beans on the side of the pot with your spoon, and stir them into the juice.

While the pressure cooker is going, cook some rice in a separate pot to serve with the beans.

Serve the beans over the cooked rice, then sprinkle the green onions you chopped over the top of the beans.
