  • 1 1/2 cups dried black eyed peas, rinsed
  • 6-8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled (or more!)

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
  2. Dump in the dried peas and boil for 30 minutes, or until tender (as tender as a canned black bean would be). Don't let them get too mushy!!
  3. Drain the beans.
  4. While the beans are boiling, fry, drain, and chop 6-8 slices of bacon. Reserve 2 tbsp. of bacon grease.
  5. In the same skillet, add in the chopped onion and garlic. Saute until tender.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°.
  7. In a large bowl, stir together the beans, chopped bacon, sauteed veggies, 1 cup of the shredded cheese and the remaining ingredients.
  8. Spread into a 7"x11" prepared dish (or similar sized dish).
  9. Bake for 20 minutes then top with remaining cheese and bake for an additional 5 minutes (or until the cheese is melted).
  10. Serve hot with tortilla or corn chips and sour cream, if you like!
