Fresh Black Eyed Peas, Crockpot

Slow Cooked Fresh Black Eyed Peas

Diana Rattray
These flavorful peas are cooked in the slow cooker and seasoned with fire-roasted tomatoes, chili powder, and bacon.


  • 1 1/2 pounds fresh black-eyed peas, rinsed, drained
  • 8 to 12 ounces bacon, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 cup chopped red and green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 can (approx. 14.5 ounces) fire-roasted diced tomatoes, or chili-seasoned tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf oregano


Put rinsed fresh black-eyed peas in a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker.

Cook bacon in a large skillet until softened; add onions, peppers, and celery and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Stir in garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the vegetable mixture to the slow cooker along with the water. Cover and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours, or until peas are tender. Add remaining ingredients and continue cooking for 1 to 2 hours longer.

Serves 6 to 8.

New Years Day Tradition, Member 1Fournier

OMG....loved these beans. This is a new ""New Years Day"" tradition in our home. I bought the fresh beans at Whole Foods, and the rest is history. Easy and yummy!! Hubby loved them too. I did not alter the recipe one bit.
