THIS WAS GREAT! I had this for a New Year's Brunch and it was a huge hit! I "constructed it" two nights before in a crock pot and kept it refrigerated until New Year's morning. I had the recipe scaled for 12 and omited one of the cans of tomato so it would fit into the crock pot. It was WONDERFUL!!! I will be making this again!!! (Just finished the leftovers tonight!)
THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL AND GREAT TASTING DISH. I USED 1 BAG OF FROZEN BLACK EYED PEAS. I ALSO USED LEAN THICK CUT BACON AND ONCE THE CHOWDER WAS COMPLETED ADDED THE COOKED BACON BACK IN. A DISH THAT CAN NOT BE FULLY APPRECIATED UNLESS YOU COOK IT A COUPLE OF DAYS AHEAD OF TIME. VERY EASY TO PREPARE.
This recipe was wonderful. Everyone loved it. I don't normally like black eyed peas but this soup is out of this world. Thank You!! It also "saved me"-I didn't know what to fix that included black eyed peas!!!
Not bad. As written it's a little bit bland so I added some red pepper flakes cayenne and garlic powder. I like the versatility of this recipe - you can have it over rice or noodles with potatoes or on its own with some nice crusty bread. Oh don't make the mistake I did: I made this New Year's Eve and threw the bacon in with the other ingredients. When we came to eat it New Year's Day the bacon had lost its lovely crispiness and was really soggy. Anyway thanks Brenda! And Happy New Year all!
I first made this recipe the day after New Year's in 1999 when I had a bowl full of peas left. My variation on this recipe is to use one can of Rotel tomatoes and a 14 ounce can of regular diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes. Of course being soup you can anything you desire. If you don't have Rotel tomatoes add a small can of green chiles or jalepenos to taste. Enjoy!
