      Very nice. The seasoning was pleasant and different from the southern style I normally prepare. I used red pepper flakes instead of the whole chili. Thanks for posting this one Nurse Di!

      Tasty! I adapted this slightly to use the cooked black eyed peas I already had on-hand and we enjoyed this over rice for a light lunch. I thought the spicing was pleasant and well-balanced. I did think that it would have benefitted from the addition of some sauteed chopped onion, however as I felt it was a little plain by itself. Good though, thanks Di!
