Crowder Pea & Corn Succotash

We had a few people coming over for dinner tonight and I made the Pioneer Woman's Spicy Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork for pulled pork sandwiches....this recipe is delicious, you should make it!  We needed a side dish to go with our pulled pork sandwiches.  So we went in the fridge to see what kind of produce we had left and we came up with crowder peas, a couple bell peppers, corn on the cob, and a few onions thus our succotash was born.  It doesn't look the prettiest, but we all agreed it was good.
Crowder peas (one paper lunch bag full)
1 small onion, diced
4 ears of corn, cut from the cob
2 small bell peppers, diced
4 pieces of bacon
fresh parsley, chopped
garlic powder
onion powder
1 bay leaf, crumbled
10 shakes of hot sauce
2.5 C water
Shell peas.
Cook bacon in frying pan.  Remove bacon from pan.
Add onion, peppers, corn, garlic powder, onion powder, bay leaf, thyme & hot sauce to bacon grease and cook until veggies are tender.
S&P to taste
Add peas and water and simmer until tender and water cooks out. 
Crumble bacon and stir into succotash.
