“Years ago a friend gave me her black-eyed pea recipe that was not your usual black-eyed peas. She called them Cottoneyed Peas. It was a spicy and warm welcome into the New Year. I now get requests for it all the time. You can make it as spicy as you like or, if you don't like spicy, use the peas without jalapeno.” - by LREYNAL

"Very good, but I found that it woks a little better if you saute the onion, garlic and celery in a little butter first -then add the remaining ingredients. This was a big hit !..." See more"
"I made this for our family's New Years dinner and it got RAVE reviews!!! It's the best way to serve black-eyed peas I have ever found! My mom was a little apprehensive because I didn't make the peas..." See more from "scratch" but changed her mind immediately after she tasted them. I used canned "seasoned" black-eyed peas and Hormel bacon bits instead of cooking bacon but it was fantastic! Definitely a keeper! It was SO easy too. I will make them for the next time I have to take a side dish to any event!"
