This is a modification of another New Year's Day Chili recipe I found here on Recipezaar. It combines traditional chili flavors with black-eyed peas, bratwurst and ground pork to celebrate the New Year.

A nice take on a Southern New year's tradition! I never made chili with black-eyed peas and this was delicious and different. I did use the tomato paste to add more thickness. Next time I will add more garlic, but it was a nice dish! I made for Spring PAC 2010 thanks!
