8 ounces dried black-eyed peas
4 cups cold water
8 ounces small shrimp, peeled & deveined
8 ounces skinless, boneless chicken
4 ounces andouille sausage
2 teaspoons olive oil

Rinse black-eyed peas. In a heavy stock pot, combine black-eyed peas and the cold water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 45 minutes or until black-eyed peas are tender. Drain peas. Set aside. Put chicken into 1/2-inch pieces and cut sausage into 1/4-inch slices. Set aside. In the stock pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and sweet pepper. Cook for about 5  minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Add chicken and sausage. Cook and stir for about 5 minutes or until starting to brown. Stir in tomato paste. Cook for a couple more minutes. Stir in tomatoes, broth, Cajun seasoning, and cooked black-eyed peas. Bring just to boiling. Stir in shrimp. Simmer for a couple more minutes. It won't take long for shrimp to cook. Serve over hot cooked rice. Garnish with green onions. Have hot pepper sauce in case someone wants to make more spicy.
