      Nurse Di! Made this last night. Dahling and I inhaled it! Sauteed some celery with the onion and upped the garlic and chicken broth. Added a bay leaf, 1 tsp hot sauce and a little Italian seasoning, plus some diced ham. Used frozen black-eyes. WOW!!! Thanks a bunch!!!!

      UPDATED REVIEW: Over the years I've come to like beans in general more than I used to, including black eyed-peas, and have to say, this recipe is really wicked good. Thank you so much for posting the recipe. We've been having it every New Year ever since I found it, and would happily make it more than once a year, too. ;-)

      OLD REVIEW: This was totally edible. That might not sound like much of a compliment, but coming from someone who hates black-eyed peas as much as I do and subjects herself to them once a year only because it's lucky tradition, it is a *huge* compliment! :-) For the most part, I just found it really salty, so I'll try this again next year but maybe using real broth instead of bouillon and adding a bay leaf and some other spice like others have suggested. Thank you for posting a recipe that made a dish I usually dread something not all that bad to look forward to! Happy New Year!
