We’ve been fixing this soup every year since about 1997.  It brings us luck every year!
¼ cup oil 1 ½ cup of hog jowl (for luck) or diced ham (if you don’t care about luck)
1 cup diced onion
28 ounce can diced tomatoes
¾ teaspoon minced garlic
¼ teaspoon salt
Sprinkle of pepper
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 can of original Rotel
5 16 ounce cans black eyed peas (for luck)
2 cups shredded cheddar
Sauté onion and hog jowl/ham in the oil until tender.  Add all the other ingredients.  Simmer for one hour.  Serve with corn bread.
Note from Christie: Even if you aren’t normally a blackeyed pea lover, you’ll LOVE this soup. It’s soooooo good!
Happy New Year!
