How to Make Easy Cajun Black Eyed Peas

These are my new favorite Black-Eyed Peas. The best part is that they are super easy! This starts with canned peas and adds tons of great flavor from bacon and cajun seasoning. We both could have made a meal out of these peas. Just add some fried okra and cornbread and we would be happy, happy, happy!

As I said, these peas are very simple to make. Simply add peas, chicken broth hot sauce, cajun/creole seasoning, and a bay leaf to a saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in some cooked bacon, discard the bay leaf, and enjoy.
