Hannah Ann's Latest Recipe Will Bring You Lots of Luck in 2021
Hannah Ann Sluss headed over to Instagram on Tuesday to share a very special recipe to help Bachelor Nation manifest everything they want in 2021.
For her online video series, “Bakin’ & Bubbly,” the self-proclaimed foodie and burgeoning chef showed followers how to make “Southern Black-Eyed Pea Dip,” a fun twist on one of the traditional foods meant to bring good luck in the new year.
“It’s the holidays and New Year’s is right around the corner,” Hannah Ann said in her latest tutorial. “And a family tradition of mine is to have black-eyed peas for good luck for the new year. My grandfather did it basically his entire life and it’s something that I’ve tried to continue.”
The Bachelor Nation star — who competed for Peter Weber’s heart on Season 24 of “The Bachelor” at the start of the year — continued, “But black-eyed peas, alone, don’t taste very good. So, I came up with this dip. I’m telling you, this is the best recipe that I’ve ever made. It’s super good. It has a nice Mexican taste to it. I love it.”
Before her cooking commenced, Hannah Ann took a sip from her tequila cocktail and toasted to 2021. “Cheers to a new year, thankfully,” she said. “I’m ready for it. I don’t know about y’all!”
The Tennessee native then broke down the recipe in four simple steps and offered viewers several tips to keep in mind while making their own dip. “I like to lightly mash my black-eyed peas. It really helps give a better texture to the dip,” she said, also explaining that the addition of ground beef can also make the dish “more hearty and filling.”
While her dip sat in the oven, Hannah Ann answered a series of fan questions. In response to a query about her “go-to dinner meal,” the model said she frequently enjoys having “turkey meat with some taco seasoning and some chips” with vegetables and hummus as a side.
“And then my favorite indulging meal would have to be some sort of pasta,” she added.
Hannah Ann also revealed how she has remained positive amid a trying year such as 2020, marked by the COVID-19 pandemic and sociopolitical unrest. “For me, it’s enjoying the small things whether it’s going on a walk or FaceTiming my grandparents and us eating dinner together through Zoom,” she said. “Just enjoying everything: cooking, walking, Zooming with my grandparents. Just always making sure to move forward in a positive manner.”
When her dip was finally ready, Hannah Ann wasted no time digging in. “Oh my God, you guys, this smells so delicious,” she said, before taking a bite. “My favorite! So good. I’m really glad that I mashed up the black-eyed peas before because it really gives it that bean texture. I love this dish. I love the spices. I love the flavors.”
She concluded, “Make this on New Year’s so that you can have some good luck. I know I need all the luck that I can get, but I’m wishing everyone a happy 2021.”
