Looking for a way to use up those leftover new year's black eyed peas without boring your palate? Try these easy, versatile microwave wonders.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the black eyed peas alone, to get some of the juices out: around 30 seconds.
  2. Using a slotted spoon, ladle the peas onto the tortilla.
  3. Sprinkle on the spices, cheese, onion, summer sausage chunks. You can use any spice combo you like, as well as any additional veggies or meat. The ingredients are just what I used.
  4. Keeping tortilla flat, microwave on high for 1 minute.
  5. Fold the tortilla over and eat with knife and fork. Fold up for a burrito if your peas aren't too juicy.
