GF New Year’s Black Eyed Pea Soup

3 slices of Oscar Meyer Bacon

chunks of ham from a spiral cut ham (Costco Kirkland brand) where the slices stop, as much as you want

12 oz bag of frozen chopped onions, thawed

5 cans Trappy’s black eyed peas,

 3 cans Swanson natural goodness chicken broth

1 can Del Monte petite cut tomatoes with jalapeños

½ small can of Old El Paso diced green chilies

1 tsp oregano

½- 1 tsp black pepper

½ tsp salt

½ rounded tsp minced garlic from a jar (2 cloves)

In large soup pot cook bacon cut up in 1 inch pieces on medium to medium high heat.

Once brown, add onions and reduce heat to medium, let onions sauté until starting to look translucent.

Add chicken broth and remaining ingredients, bring to boil then reduce heat to simmer for 20-30 minutes.  This soup is better the 2nd day when the flavors have had time to mesh.  It should freeze well.
