Nicole Pough


1 medium white onion, chopped

3 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 (16 oz) bag of dry black eyed peas

Smoked Turkey (as much as you
desire. I used half of a fully cooked, smoked turkey leg. Just chopped the meat up into bits. You can leave it whole if you do not like meat in your black eyed peas but like the flavor)

3 cups of chicken broth (or enough to cover the beans)

4 cups water

Season salt

black pepper

1. Sort & wash the black eyed peas. Set aside.
2. Chop onions & garlic.
3. In a large pot, add in 2 Tablespoons of olive oil and saute the onions and garlic until tender.
4. Add in the chopped meat, black eye peas, chicken broth and water.
5. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour or until black eyed peas are tender.
6. Remove from heat and let sit covered for about 10-15 minutes.
7. Season with red season salt & black pepper if desired.
