Recipe by Brenda
"This is great for a New Years Eve gathering or any cold winter night. It's excellent served with cornbread. Works best when prepared the night before, and then reheated the next day."

THIS WAS GREAT! I had this for a New Year's Brunch and it was a huge hit! I "constructed it" two nights before in a crock pot and kept it refrigerated until New Year's morning. I had the recipe scaled for 12, and omited one of the cans of tomato so it would fit into the crock pot. It was WONDERFUL!!! I will be making this again!!! (Just finished the leftovers tonight!)
Not bad. As written, it's a little bit bland, so I added some red pepper flakes, cayenne, and garlic powder. I like the versatility of this recipe - you can have it over rice or noodles, with potatoes, or on its own with some nice crusty bread. Oh, don't make the mistake I did: I made this New Year's Eve, and threw the bacon in with the other ingredients. When we came to eat it New Year's Day, the bacon had lost its lovely crispiness, and was really soggy. Anyway, thanks, Brenda! And Happy New Year all!
THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL AND GREAT TASTING DISH. I USED 1 BAG OF FROZEN BLACK EYED PEAS. I ALSO USED LEAN, THICK CUT BACON AND ONCE THE CHOWDER WAS COMPLETED ADDED THE COOKED BACON BACK IN. A DISH THAT CAN NOT BE FULLY APPRECIATED UNLESS YOU COOK IT A COUPLE OF DAYS AHEAD OF TIME. VERY EASY TO PREPARE.
Pretty good. I used Chicken broth instead of beef broth and added some pepper to spice it up a bit. Also, may be better with 2 cans of black-eyed peas instead of 1 because the tomatoes were numerous.
This recipe was wonderful. Everyone loved it. I don't normally like black eyed peas but this soup is out of this world. Thank You!! It also "saved me"-I didn't know what to fix that included black eyed peas!!!
Very tasty soup. I used lean 'weight watchers' bacon, added another cup of celery and then liquidised 3/4 of the soup. Delicious, very filling, non fattening and so healthy!
I use "Sizzle-Lean" instead of bacon and also puree my tomatoes and add a can of whole kernal corn. Makes an excellent winter soup.
This was good, not great. It could have used more black eyed peas and bacon in it.
