Once your beans are ready put them directly into your slow cooker.
add broth and sliced sausage. Stir in the rotel.
Finally, Add greens, and sprinkle on the salt and pepper.
Cover the greens will be tough to fit in but get them in (They’ll shrivel up once they’re cooked)
Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours, or until the beans are soft. If you need it faster Cooking on High for 6 will also work 🙂
After it’s cooked stir well.
Finally , stir in the rice or serve rice first and use a ladle to pour the Hoppin’ John mixture.
While cooking the smell of the collards will be strong! My mom kept thinking something was burning. However, the taste is well worth the “smell”.
