  1. This is great. I am Vegan so so I tweaked it a little and added Vegan
    Bacon and some extra salsa and green tobacco plus a smidgen of liquid smoke. I also threw in a hand full of dollars greens in with the kale. Your version is great. I am one of those who keeps adding. Thank you.

  2. Gina, I actually tried this recipe this week. I added both the kale and potatoes before heading to work that very day and it was ready to serve when I came home. The smell alone was inviting. Very good recipe. Easy to make. Does it freeze well?

  3. Gina Marie!!! Girl, this soup is a hit in the Lewis home! I only wish I had doubled everything, because I was wrong when I thought only I would be eating it and would have it for a week…WRONG! Well, I didn’t quite convince the hubs only because he won’t try it due to the beans. However, our teen daughters scarfed and slurped through most of it today. Thank God they didn’t try it until today or else I wouldn’t have gotten even a spoon of it yesterday when I got the first bowl.

    Well, I guess I better start soaking more beans, because I could literally have this everyday! Thank you Gina for the recipe. I can’t wait to try more and Happy Blessed New Year!

    • So happy you and your family enjoyed it! Men are like that aren’t they? lol My guy is the exact same way…they will come around one day ?

  4. Girl- this soup looks amazing! Perfect for a cold winter’s day! My grandmother used to make a homemade dinner roll that had liquid smoke in it, so I’ve got that on hand! Gonna definitely try this recipe!

  5. I absolutely love liquid smoke. I think it is one of the coolest ingredients to cook with. Also I really love all of the information you shared about each ingredient and I had no idea that black eyed peas are associated with good luck.. I need good luck so i’ll be making this recipe!
