Not a fan of black eyed peas but my husband loves them. This recipe was tasty enough for me to really enjoy and even my picky hubby liked it too. Next time I'll use peppered bacon just to give it a bit more kick.

I really loved this recipe. It was delicious over cornbread. I added more bacon and used frozen black-eyed peas instead of fresh since I had them on hand. It was a great was enjoy a New Year's tradition.

I've made this soup MANY times over the past couple of years! It's definately my "go-to" soup recipe! Sometimes I add ham in place of bacon. You can also leave out the potatoes & it's just as good & hearty! Freezes well too! Thank you for a great recipe!!
