Louisiana style eating! Said to be good luck if eaten at New Years. Classic "holy trinity" plus garlic and Black Eye Peas-you can't go wrong.
Fry bacon until crisp. Drain, then chop into bite sized pieces. Reserve some of the bacon oil. Finely chop green pepper, onion, celery & garlic and sauté in oil until tender (do not brown). Add black eyed peas, bacon & bay leaf to pan. Add enough water to just cover the peas. Add chopped jalapeno (minus the seeds) if desired. Season with salt & pepper. Bring to boil, lower heat to a slow simmer, then cover & cook until peas are tender (add water if necessary). To serve, spoon over rice.
This also makes a great soup. Just add six cups of chicken broth instead of the water. (A restaurant called “Black Eye Pea” that used to be in the Sunset Hills, Missouri area served a soup very similar to this. Their recipe definitely had Jalapeño in it.)
