Step 1

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray, and place over medium-high heat until hot. Saute ham 3 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned; stir in black-eyed peas and the water. Reduce heat to medium and simmer 8 minutes, or until liquid is almost evaporated. Partially mash beans with back of a spoon to desired consistency.

In a medium bowl, stir together tomato, scallions, celery, parsley, oil, and vinegar.

Spoon warm bean mixture into a serving bowl, and top with tomato mixture. Serve with crackers.
