  • 1 onion, chopped

Love black-eyed peas! I like to throw some finely shredded collard, mustard or turnip greens in them, too.
This looks really good. 😋

I'm one of those people who typically only eat black-eyed peas on New Year's, so I can see now that I need to change that, LOL! Thanks for the yummy recipe.
