      Steve1 was kind enough to post this recipe after I posted a request for it. I made it on New Years and it was fabulous! It was easy to assemble, used readily available ingredients and the taste was great! The best black-eyed peas I've ever had! I know what I'm cooking every New Years from now until eternity! Thanks so much for posting!

      This is a really good recipe! I made minor adjustments, using frozen/fresh black eyed peas instead of canned; and cubed smoked ham instead of bacon; and a longer cooking/simmering time. I added celery & bell pepper. It wasn't spicy enough for our tastes so I used canned Rotel tomatoes (tomatoes with green chilis) and added red pepper, Tabasco, & Louisiana hot sauce, and a dash of worchestershire. Served with mini cornbread muffins, it was a hit! The flavor was good and this was a filling way to serve B-E peas in honor of the new year.

      We don't have the Black-Eyed Pea restaurant where I live, so I have no idea what their version tastes like. This one was simply delicious, though. I made a half batch of this recipe, using canned tomatoes (since I didn't have fresh) and cheddar cheese. I served it with cornbread. I was impressed that it only took about 15 minutes to make--although maybe I didn't cook it as long as your directions require. Let me just say, this soup was GONE in about 10 minutes--that's very unusual with my family. DE-LICIOUS!
