I have finally found a black eyed pea recipe worth keeping. Great flavor! I had to use 1/2lb. bacon in place of ham hocks. In the deep South ham hocks don't last in the store.

I have made this 5 maybe six times..totally awesome!! I add a little more zip, tabasco and red pepper. Ham shanks have more meat(fyi).

I really enjoyed this simple and delicious dish! I didn't have any ham so I added a little bacon fat and wanted to make this more of a meal, so I added about 1/2 cup cooked brown rice towards the end. Thanks for posting!
