5 slices bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound dried black-eyed peas, washed
12-ounce can diced tomatoes and green chiles
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3 1/2 cups water
In a heavy saucepan or deep skillet, fry the bacon until nice and crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan, chop, and set aside for later. DO NOT SAMPLE BACON.
Saute the chopped onion in the bacon drippings until translucent. Add the peas, tomatoes, salt pepper, chili powder and water. Cover and cook over medium – low heat for 1 hour, or until the peas are tender and the liquid is absorbed. Garnish with bacon.
