  1. Heat the olive oil and balsamic vinegar in a skillet; cook and stir the orange bell pepper, celery, carrot, onion, and garlic in the hot oil until the onion is translucent, 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer the mixture to a slow cooker; mix in the black-eyed peas, water, and vegetable base, stirring to dissolve the vegetable base. Stir in the chipotle peppers, about 1 tablespoon of the reserved adobo sauce (or to taste), liquid smoke, cumin, and black pepper.
  2. Cook in the slow cooker on Low until the black-eyed peas are very tender and the flavors are blended, about 8 hours.

I cut the recipe in half from 20 to 10 servings and I used chicken stock instead of the veggie base/water. Garnished it with cilantro and crumbled bacon and it was very good. Spicy yes but it is supposed to be. I will make this again and Happy New Year 2010!!!!


I made this recipe exactly as written and we all LOVED it! Yes, it is spicy...but that should be expected as the description DOES say it's very spicy (honestly, have you ever had a chipotle pepper that wasn't)? This was an excellent dish to have on a very cold day. Even my picky 14 year old daughter ate it up! I would not change a thing with this recipe and urge you to try it if you like spicy foods.


The carrots totally ruined this for me, they made it too sweet, will try again without the carrots, and add more garlic and chipotle , a cheese garnish would be good, creative idea , but it needs tweeking...
