Hoppin' John Soup (Cookin' with Cops)
1 lb Sausage hot or mild browned and drained
1 box of Uncle Ben's long grain and wild rice w/seasoning
2 cans black-eyed peas
1 pkg dried onion soup mix
1 8 oz tub of sour cream
6 cups of water
salt and pepper to taste
Bring water to a boil. Dump all other ingredients (except sour cream) into the boiling water. Turn down the heat and let simmer. soup will start to get thick. When it thickens, add the sour cream into the mixture. The longer it simmers the thicker it is and the better it is.
Don't forget to salt and pepper to taste. To make large amounts just double the ingredients. It's also great w/ hot sauce.
