Classic peas get all dressed up for the holidays in our recipe for Christmas Peas. This Christmas-ready side dish features a whole lot of crunch, color, and creamy, so you can bet it'll be welcomed with an open mouth!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8-ounce) can sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 (2.8 ounce) can French-fried onions, with 1 cup reserved for topping
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped (see Note)
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the reserved French-fried onions; mix well.
  3. Pour into an 8-inch square baking dish and sprinkle reserved French-fried onions around edge.
  4. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until heated through and bubbly.


  • The red bell pepper makes this a very colorful red and green Christmas dish, but any color bell pepper will do.

I made this over the weekend and the family loved it. Similar to green bean casserole but with peas and water chestnuts great crunch. Will make many times!

Made this for a vegetable side with baked chicken the other night. I didn't have fresh red peppers so used jared roasted red peppers. It was very tasty and gave some color to the meal. Really like the water chestnuts for a crunch. Will make again.
