Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a sauce pan pour in dried peas and fill with tap water so it's 3 inches over the top. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Drain in a colander and set aside.
  • Slice 1/4 in slices on the chourico link making sure not to cut too deep so sausage remains intact.
  • Heat the olive oil in a soup pan and add the onion and jalapeno and saute for 5 minutes. Push the mixture off to the side and add the chourico. Brown both sides, around 5 min each side and make sure to mix vegetables so they don't burn.
  • Remove from pan and degalze the pan with one cup of water. Add all remaining ingredients except theBARLEY AND 2/3 cup of stock and the 2 CUPS OF CHICKEN STOCK.
  • Bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hr.
  • Allow to sit overnight.
  • In a small pan add 2/3 cup of stock and the barley, bring to a boil and reduce heat and simmer ten minutes.
  • Remove neck bones and sausage, pick pieces of meat from neck bones and cut chourico into bite sized pieces and add both back to the pot. Discard neck bones.
  • Combine barley to the pot with the peas and add the 2 cups of chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 minutes.

    Thankx for the rating. I've been adding barley to just about everything and it's good and adds another dimension to textures. I really like it in chili much more than noodles.

    I like the Barley addition, I did a spicy Hoppin' John for a New Years Eve Party I cooked for.

    That is a fast cook barley, not barely, right?
    I'm trying to use smoked turkey parts instead of fat back or jowl in my greens and beans this year..the flavor is good, but less saturated fat.
    Love this combination of flavors and chorizo is a spicy addition. Happy New Year.
