Spicy Black Eyed Pea Soup

Shelia Avant


Years ago I used to work at a restaurant and they had a version of this soup as a special and i ate it every chance I got. I loved this soup so I got some of the ingredients from an old manager but he couldn't give me the whole recipe. I put it all together and added a few ingredients, peaked and tuned and “voila"...ummm ummm good! Try it! It's a great way to get your kids to eat veggies and not even realize it's good for them!

Combine all the ingredients into 1 large pot, stir, well, cover and cook on medium heat 2 to 4 hours or until peas are soft and well seasoned.. If you follow this recipe it is very spicy. But you can replace 1 can of the Rotel tomatoes for a can of chopped tomatoes an omit the crushed red pepper. Cook 2 to 4 hours or until peas are soft and well seasoned.
