"Absolutely delicious! Thanks for posting this recipe!"
"I can never find tasso so substitued smoked sausage. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly and it turned out excellent. This dish has a ton of flavor and is really simple to put together."
"I used part beef and part chicken stock. Also, we don't eat pork, but used organic smoked turkey bacon from Earthfare and these peas tasted heavenly! You have to try this one. YUM!! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"I made this for New Years Day. The flavors are perfect. It was the crowd the favorite. Thanks for posting!"
"Delicious! My market didn't have tasso, so I just used applewood smoked ham. I also had an excellent ham hock. My only problem was I had a surplus of meat, as my hock had a lot of good meat on it. No worries, I just cooked up some split pea soup, too!"
"Delicious! I've made this for New Year's Day for several years now. I can't find tasso so I just use ham. The seasoning is great in this dish. We usually serve it with cornbread."
"Got to have black-eyed peas for luck on New Year's Day. This is a delicious recipe, Di!! Left out the cayenne for those non-spicy diners. Made for the Hail to the Chefs-Food Network Challenge in Cooking Photos."
"I have been on a quest for 20+years looking for a good black eyed pea recipe and this is it! Used the ham hocks and tasso, omitted the salt. Perfect, you don't need to add any seasonings at the table with this one!"
"This is one of our standard, go-to black-eyed pea recipes. We add twice as much ham hock and skip the sausage, and that works great for us. It's a hit with guests and is fabulous with cornbread."
"This is a really great recipe. I've been making this for New Year's day about 4 years. I always use 1 pound of leftover Christmas ham in place of the meat in the recipe."
"My family really enjoyed this receipe, I really don't like the meat from the ham hock, so I just added extra ham/tasso which worked out great."
"As made by this recipe, I thought it was a little salty. Other than that, I would say this was amazing. Super delicious and loved by everyone in my family."
"Delicious way to insure good luck on New Year's Day. We like our peas fairly soft so after the first hour I covered the pot and simmered them another 30 minutes. I had some of Mean Chef's Pulled Pork #26257 in the freezer so I used that instead of the tasso. We had this with cornbread on the side."
"This was great tasting, very yummmmy!!!! I love my peas, and this was just what I was looking for! Thanks DiB's...."
