Spicy Collard and Black-eyed Pea Soup

Ringing in the New Year with hopes of good luck and prosperity
makes 3-4 servings

*3 cup broth
*1 cup black eyed peas
*2 gloves garlic, diced
Put in crock pot on high for one hour

*1 onion, diced
*1 celery stalk, diced
*1 bell pepper, diced (I used a roasted red pepper, but any would do)
*1 can tomatoes
*2 tsp hot sauce
*1 tsp Southwestern salt blend (a mix of salt, chipolte, oregano-use whatever you have)
*collards, chopped (no idea how much since I picked it myself (1/2 pound? 2-3 cups?)
Add remaining items in crockpot on high for 3 hours.

If you need to get it all done at once, you can put everything in at one time. I wanted the peas to be soft, without overcooking the collards. 3-4 hours on high, 6-8 hours on low.
