Black Eyed Pea Soup

Are yall ready for this?  These beans are so yummy and they were approved by all ages of our household!  It takes a while for them to cook but the prep is very easy so it wont take a lot of your time in the kitchen. These are a must try so cook it and let me know what you think!   Some members of my household ate it plain and some of us poured it over some brown rice so you do what your little heart desires!  =)  A yummy pan of cornbread would go perfect with it! My mouth is watering so here's the recipe already...


  • 2 medium bags of black eyed peas
  • 4 TBSP salt
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped
  • 1/2 clove fresh garlic chopped
  • 1 link of lean sausage (venison / pork if you have it, or substitute ½ lb of bacon cut in short pieces, turkey bacon for less fat)
  • 3 TBSP cumin
  • 1 TBSP rosemary
  • 4 TBSP garlic powder
  • 3 TBSP black pepper
  • 1 can rotel
  • 2 cans of diced or stewed tomatoes
  • 1 can chopped green chilies

  • Put peas in a large pot and cover with water a few inches over the peas.  Bring to boil.  Maintain enough water to cover the top of the peas.  Add salt, onion, and garlic.
  • Slow boil for about 1.5 hours in large pot (use heavy pot and/or stir frequently so they don’t stick).
  • After peas of softened, add seasoning & sausage.
  • Reduce heat to low and slow cook for approximately 2 hours, stirring occasionally. 
  • Add salt if needed, to your taste.
