Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Soup

kept bySue.Lau

Easy to make in the crock pot. Has a great cajun flavor. Goes great with corn bread on the side.


16 ounces dried black-eyed peas
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped carrots or 1 cup chopped bell pepper (may mix)
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 to 2 bay leaf
1 pound smoked sausage (or 1 lb andouille sausages or 1 lb kielbasa, cut into chunks)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon cajun spices or 1 tablespoon spice essence
1 (49 1/2 ounce) can chicken broth (large can)
Cayenne pepper sauce or Tabasco sauce, to taste

Step 1
Sort peas and soak in plenty of water overnight.

Step 2
Before cooking, drain and rinse.

Step 3
Place all ingredients into crock pot and cook on low for 8-10 hours or until peas are nicely tender.

Step 4
Remove bay leaves before serving.

Step 5
Serve with additional tabasco, if desired.

Step 6
This is kind of brothy being a soup but if you like a thicker bean texture, you can either mash some of the peas or cook it longer until the peas begin to burst.
