Black-Eyed Pea Chili for Crock Pot

By Pat Duran kitchenchatter


This is a great comfort chili that is healthy. and it can be made with ground turkey, bacon or other meats if desired. We like it both without the meat and with the meat;your choice. This like most chili, is even better the next day.
Great served with corn bread or garlic toast.(I used Bisquick cornmeal crust)
