One of my absolute favorites. Hearty - filling, and on a cold Alaska day, nothing reminds me more of the south. I don't alter the recipe - I do include a lot of veggies. Thank you for this!

Made this on New Year's Day and it was a big hit. I fried up some bacon and then sauteed medium chunks of the vegies in a little of the bacon grease. Used ham instead of the sausages, a can of rotel and Emeril's Essence (found here on the site) for the cajun spices. Definately a keeper and one I will use again. Thank you for posting. Made for Turning Over a New Leaf...Diabetic Forum 2011.

Made this today in the crockpot while I was out cleaning leaves...I let it cook for a full 10 hours. It smells SOOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!!! I did cut down on the spices just a bit since I have at least 1 kid that will be eating it....Maybe next time I'll add a few potatoes??? It needs something....but I am LOVING IT!!! Thanks for a great recipe! I'm always looking for new things to try!

Amazing soup! I have had black eyed peas in the cabinet for a long time and wanted to use them. I used Italian spicy sausage because that is what I had in the freezer. I did not plan ahead so I did not soak the beans over night. Instead I boiled the beans for 2 minutes, removed them from heat and let soak in the water for 1 hr, they were ready to go after that and worked just great!

Wow, this is great! I don't like BEP's and have to force myself to eat them because I know they're good for me. Made a half batch using canned organic peas (it was all I had) on the stovetop and left out the salt because my Cajun seasoning was Tony Chachere's (very salty). It was perfect!

This one is going into my favorite soups cookbook. Glad DH has a meeting tonight so I can have the leftovers--YUM!

This was a really delicious filling soup. Served with cornbread and made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game. Next time, would leave out the salt as it was plenty salty with the broth and sausage and I didn't even add the full amount. Leftovers delicious for lunch today. Thanks for posting! Definitely recommend!

I've made this several times now - using various kinds of sausage and combo's with ham. My husband and friends have enjoyed this each time I've made it. I've always gone heavy on the veggies - and slightly adjusted (up) the spices. Thanks!

Fantastic! My whole family love this soup. My 10 yr old daughter wants me to pack it for her lunch tomorrow, high compliments. I used turkey kielbasa and omitted the cayenne pepper and sauce because there are children eating this soup. I added a chopped up fresh jalapeno pepper (removed seeds and membranes), no heat was added. So easy and healthy. I will definitely make this soup again. Thank you.

I was skeptical that I'd like this, because I WANT to like black-eyed peas, but rarely do. HOWEVER, this recipe was great!! This is so delicious, I can hardly believe it. I cut down on the salt. Also, I cooled this in the 'fridge overnight, then removed the fat next day. This is truly a fantastic soup!
