Black-Eyed Pea Soup Recipe

Publisher Photo
Since we raise our own pigs, I like to use ground pork in this zesty soup. But I've used ground beef with equally good results. Green chilies give this dish some Southwestern flair. —Mary Lou Chernik, Taos, New Mexico

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 4, 2012

"I've made this recipe several times. It is so easy. We just love it. Sometimes I use other ground meats such as beef or chicken. Sometimes I use dried black eyed peas and soak over night, cook for about 1 hour and then add them to the soup using the cooking liquid in place of the water. It comes out good every time."
