I chose this for my New Year's black-eyed pea recipe! It's pretty good- it's not spicy & is more of a mush than a soup. You really have to watch it & keep adding water- it makes a lot- use a big pot.(4-5 qt.) Good luck to all in 2005! Happy New Year!

We didn't care for this recipe much. Cooking the rice that long turns it to mush. You have to add a lot of extra water during the cooking time too. I probably won't make again but would definitely recommend adding the rice during the last half hour of cook time.

Liked this recipe because it had all the elements that New Year's Black-eyed Peas should have; spicy and smoky. When I made this right out of the gate I added basmati rice which has a longer cook time (no mush), cumin and about 4 1/2 cups of extra water. Next time I may try to make a vegetarian version, so I can serve small bowls of it before the Pork & Sauerkraut bonzana.

I substituted some organic french onion soup for the dry onion soup and beef broth. Also, used some sliced kielbasa in place of the sausage. It was excellent. Will definitely use this recipe again!

I doubled the recipe. I used cranberry beans instead of black eyed peas since I couldn't find peas at the store. I also added 1/4 cup hot sauce, 3 cups fresh kale, & half the rice called for. Turned out pretty good. :)

This is a great base for a recipe but is missing a few key ingredients. Here are the changes I made: - added LOTS of liquid - a quart of chicken stock (what I had), 3 cups of water, & a large can tomato sauce - used brown rice; it holds up better to the soup - also added 2 cans Rotel tomatoes and chills - also added 1 can of spiced turnip greens. Would have added two if I had them. - used browned bulk sausage instead of sliced smoked sausage (just personal preference)
