    Sue Lau's Note:

    You can serve this on rice or simply as a side dish. It's alittle bit spicy, but you might like to add some Tabasco or hot green pepper sauce to give it a little more punch. I do.

      YUM! I have never made black eyed peas this way, so it was a treat. I subbed out 2 cups of the chicken stock for some leftover ham juices that I had frozen from our Christmas honey baked ham. Loved the slight sweetness with the beans. I used half a jalapeno with seeds and I easily could have use the entire pepper (mine had no bite so I just added extra green hot sauce). I also threw in some chopped button mushrooms for extra veggie power. My ham hocks were TINY with literally NO real meat so we just topped each serving some crispy chopped bacon; not a bad thing as it's probably a lot less calories that way. Thanks for posting!

      These are AWESOME. I made this in my crockpot and used about 1 1/2 jalapenos and left the seeds in. It definitely gave it a bite! I also used some of the juice left from the honey ham I had cooked. It was the perfect compliment to the spiciness. I didn't add the carrots because I didn't have any. I can't wait to eat the leftovers!

      Ive never been a huge fan of black eye peas, until now! This recipe is wonderful! I left out the peppers, but it was still fantastic! The pot is empty; that's a good sign!
