    This really should be called SPICY Black-Eyed Pea soup, because the addition of Rotel tomatoes and chilies give it a kick in taste. If you prefer a non spicy soup, skip the Rotel and add a can of regular diced tomatoes and 8 slices of bacon or more. It will be on the bland side, but the bacon taste gives it some taste without the kick. This recipe certainly was fast and easy to make.
