Black-Eyed Pea Chowder

Tammy Raynes


Another specialty from the south is black-eyed peas. You'll find this little pea grown in most gardens in the south. And you will discover that it's not just for New Year's Day celebration.

This recipe is a filling yet speedy soup. For this recipe I'm substituting canned black-eyed peas for the fresh ones. Normally I wouldn't do this because I use fresh. But for those of you that might not have them in your part of the country you can use canned ones.
