  • 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)

  4. Add in the chopped meat, black-eye peas, & chicken broth
  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 pepper & black pepper if desired.
