Made this for my New Years day good luck dish. My black eyed peas must have been old, as they needed to boil for at least 15-20 minutes. Cooked those in a stock pot, let them sit for an hour, drained and rinsed well. Cooked the onion and red pepper in a saute pan, added 4 cloves minced garlic. Removed vegetables and deglazed the pan with 2 tbls red wine vinegar. Sliced up Andouille sausage, browned that and degalzed pan with a little chicken stock. Put everything into the stock pot (omitted cajun seasoning, since I added Andouille) and cooked at a low simmer for an hour. Should have put a tsp of salt in it, but other than that it came out REALLY good! I lived in New Orleans for many years and this was on the money.
