Black eyed? Black eye? Born in the South, we call them black-eyed. Pyrite? What do Texans call them?
For Your Good Luck Recipe:
- 4 slices bacon, chopped
- 1 pound dry black-eyed peas
- 6 cups water
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- salt to taste
Fry out the bacon and drain the grease off. Add the other stuff. Cook. Eat. Good luck. BTW, I don't put a jalpeno pepper in mine. Or the chili powder...but, check with the Western Southerners...I'm more Eastern.
