Very nice! I cut the recipe exactly in half and it was an ideal meal over cornbread muffins for 3 people. I think if you cut it in half, cut the time in half too, I did mine for 1 hour and it was almost like refried beans in texture, but it tasted great. I might add some water next time too.
Excellent! I love the addition of the jalapeno peppers. Thank you for a great recipe.
My husband and I LOVED this recipe!! He asked me to make it every other week. The only thing I did different was to soak my dried black-eyed peas overnight in my crock pot and in the morning I added everything else before I left for work. I put it over http://www.recipezaar.com/Sweet-Cornbread-83625 this cornbread with some hot sauce on top. YUMMO!! Thanks so much for a wonderful recipe!!
These were so deeelish! I made these for New Years day and they were a hit! I used the jalepeno that are in a jar b/c I didn't have fresh and it added good flavor. Thanks for posting, this will be our new New Years Day traditional BE peas recipe!
I don't love black eyed peas, but they were popular with those who did. I used cubed ham, the kind that is vacuum sealed in plastic.
I have made these several times now. The only modifications I make are:half chicken stock/water,a package of Knorr vegetable soup mix(gives great flavor) and Serano peppers (I think they're better and hotter than Jalapenos). These are great beans!!!
Sorry it has taken me so long to post. I never liked black eyed peas until I found this recipe last year. I have been making it ever since and not just for new years. I sometime add tobasco when I serve it but not becasue it needs it I just like it. I also usually double the recipe and freeze half in lunch sized portions for later. Thanks for a great recipe.
I made this the other night and my oldest son and I loved it. The rest of the family doesn't really like them in general so thier opinion didn't count. LOL I actually put all of the dry in ingredients in a crock pot and put it in the fridge. Then that morning I just added water to about 1-2 inches above the dry ingredients. I let them cook about 10 hours, and did not soak the beans prior to cooking. I also didn't have ham hocks so I just put in some large chunks of smoked ham I had in the freezer. I have to say even though they other family members don't care for them they ate these without complaining. My oldest son is already asking when I will make them again. Oh and for use this had way more than 8 servings. this fed 2 adults and 3 kids (6 and under) for 2 meals plus Thanks for posting a great recipe!
These were very good. Made them for New Year's Day. Very easy and taste very close to what my mom use to make. Thanks for sharing!
These were very yummy! Very easy to make. Just threw it all in the pot and let it cook. I used a ham hock and followed the recipe exactly. What a yummy way to start the new year!
