  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes.
  2. Place the dried peas, water, onion, tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, garlic, and chili powder into a slow cooker, and stir to combine. Stir in the bacon and bacon grease, and set the cooker on High. Cook until peas are tender, about 4 hours. Season to taste with salt, and serve.

This made a great New Year's Day dish, but would work well any time of year. I added the "rest of the bacon" and used a large can of diced tomatoes. The taste is great! Thanks for the recipe!

Did not slow cook! ...Best peas ever after 3 days. My objective was more like a BEP soup of sorts. Did not want the peas to turn to mush. I was concerned about that with the leftovers if I slow ...

Cooked this today for a new years day lunch pot luck entry. Every one loved it. I didn't use the jalapeno because some people (not me) in my family don't like spicy foods.
