13 oz Butterball Turkey Smoked Sausage, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 large white onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
½ c chopped parsley

 Add oil to a heavy bottomed pot over medium high heat, add sausage and saute until browned.  Remove the sausage from the pan and reserve.  Toss onion, carrots, celery, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and ancho chile powder into hot pan.  Cook, stirring frequently, for 5-7 minutes until vegetables are softened.  Add tomatoes, black eyed peas, and broth.  Simmer for 40-45 minutes. Check peas for doneness.  Add sausage back in when black eyed peas are tender.  Top with extra virgin olive oil, spicy honey or vinegar. Enjoy on this winter weekend.

Feel free to swap out the sausage or the broth for your favorite.
