"This is great for a New Years Eve gathering or any cold winter night. It's excellent served with cornbread. Works best when prepared the night before, and then reheated the next day."

  1. In a large pot over medium high heat, saute the bacon until crisp. Set aside the bacon and drain the fat, reserving about 4 tablespoons of the fat in the pot. Add the celery onion and green bell pepper to the pot and saute in the bacon fat for 10 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Add the peas, consomme and stewed tomatoes and allow to heat through, about 15 more minutes. Top with crumbled bacon when serving.

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 ...

I use "Sizzle-Lean" instead of bacon and also puree my tomatoes and add a can of whole kernal corn. Makes an excellent winter soup.

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 po...
