I'm not a fan of black-eyed peas but my wife is Southern and I wanted her to fulfill her New Year's requirement. This soup is incredibly delicious. I did substitute beef broth for the water / bouillon and I left out the chilies otherwise I stayed true to the recipe. The Ro-Tel tomatoes brought the perfect amount of heat for us. This soup is very meaty and the black-eyed peas play a supporting role bringing a pleasant complexity to the flavor. If you really like them I think that you could easily add another can without overwhelming the soup. I made Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread to go with it. Tomorrow's leftovers will be with rice. I can hardly wait. Read More

I didn't care for this soup at all but the men of the house loved it. I just durn like the flavored of beef and sausage mixed together. I'd do it again differently if the guys want me to but otherwise I wouldn't make a new attempt. Read More

Excellent!!! I didn't have pork sausage so I ground some pork sirloin with my Kitchen Aid mixer and used that. Since it wasn't seasoned as sausage I added about 1/2 teaspoon sage and extra garlic salt. That's the only change I made and this stuff is wonderful! I'm serving with cornbread and can't wait until time to eat! Try this it is excellent!!! edited...Dinner is over and we enjoyed every bite! I'm almost afraid to try it with the sausage since the ground pork was so good! I will however try the sausage next time and report back.:) Read More

Had black eyed peas left from New Year's Day and thought I'd try something other than throwing them in w/ a pot of vegetable soup. So glad I tried this! Daughter #1 who HATES and despises black eyed peas came in from work and ate two yes two bowls and pronounced it delicious. I did have about a cup more peas than the recipe calls for but hey it's soup right? Absolutely not too many. Wouldn't have a problem w/ more. In my opinion it needed much more time on the stove. 45 minutes is not enough time to mingle and marry the flavors. After tasting I felt it needed more kick. Now please understand that I do not like things too hot just spicy. I added extra salt and pepper and a gracious plenty (as Mama always said) of Frank's Original hot sauce. Practically perfect in every way. When I added a 14.5 oz can of tomatoes and chilies abovementioned daughter and I were practically dancing w/ joy. Now that I've reviewed original recipe I'm probably going back to the kitchen to add a few cans of other beans not and I repeat NOT because the soup needs it...just cuz I'm trying to add more vegs to my diet. I make lots of soups and freeze them in one serving bags to take to work for lunch. Very delicious healthy and frugal. I'm looking forward to having this one. Cornbread essential. Read More

Absolutely delish!! This is a quick and easy meal that tastes fantastic! My husband and the kids loved it. We served it with salad and corn chips. The only change I made was adding pinto beans and navy beans instead of the black-eyed peas. It is all I had on hand. Black-eyed peas are beans anyway so I can't imagine the taste would be that much different if I had used the black-eyed peas. This recipe is absolutely worth making. It is so easy and uses ingredients that many people would have on hand. YUM! Read More

This was delicious! It was a last minute meal and I happened to have 3 cans of black eyed peas! The only change I made was adding 2 cans of Rotel and not the extra can of green chilies. The whole family liked it - 11 and up. Read More

This was very good!!! I can see adapting this with a different bean for those that are not fans of black eyed peas. I served over cornbread with a dollop of chow chow. I am posting a picture and took like 10 shots it does not photograph well!!!! but don't let that deter you from trying it as 5 stars is in order! This is perfect for good luck on New Years Day bet it would fabulous served over rice too thanks for sharing!!!!! Read More

This is the best black eyed pea recipe I have tried. The best part is that it is so easy and quick to make! I didn't have to spend hours boiling beans and ham hocks. Only change I made was to add 3 (14.5) cans of tomatoes with chiles instead of the 2 plain/1 peppers called for. This was a big hit with all!!! Read More

Awesome recipe even approved by my picky grandson. I inadvertently left out the big can of tomatoes but it was still great. Next time I think I'm going to add frozen okra. Read More
