It looks great.
Where does all that broth come from? It's got to be more that the can of Rotel... Do you soak the beans and use that liquid?

I left out cover with water.

I did soak them but only for about two hours.

I never heard of black eyed peas until I moved to Texas.

My Texan mom, transplanted to Ca. always insisted on BEP for New Year's Day and I've followed the practice since she's been gone. If you can find frozen BEP's they are much better I think, and I always cook greens with them along with a ham hock and chicken stock. I like mustard greens the best. Good eats to be sure.
PP, I really like the idea of a can of Rotel....I'll add that. Yumm...
