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 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...

Normally I cook the frozen ones, they are quicker. Fresh is best but cant always get them.

My Grandma always had BEP and cabbage for new years. I like collard greens but like you prefer mustard greens.

This looks yummy! I had to look up Rotel though. We have canned Mexican tomatoes that are similar here. I'll use that :)

Snip, you (and others) may find this interesting why southern Americans think this dish is lucky for New Years Day.

We were taught that we had to leave 1 pea on our plates so we'd have good luck for the rest of the year.
