    4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
    2 1/2 cups chicken broth
    1 cup dried black-eyed peas, sorted and rinsed
    2 medium celery stalks, sliced (1 cup)
    1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
    1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh savory leaves or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried savory leaves
    1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    3 medium carrots, thinly sliced (1 1/2 cups)
    1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeƱo peppers (2 ounces)


**cheese and crumbled bacon not in calorie calculation, but did estimate the bacon grease used in the main part of the dish.

1. Cook bacon in 10-inch skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp. Remove bacon with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Drain fat from skillet.
2. Heat broth, peas, celery, onion, savory and garlic to boiling in same skillet. Boil uncovered 2 minutes; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peas are almost tender (do not boil or peas will burst).
3. Stir in carrots. Heat to simmering. Cover and simmer about 13 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender; stir. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon.
