This is a delicious casserole and it's so easy to make. I've put it in the crockpot for 4 hours on low instead of baking it, and that works great, too, especially if you're taking it to a pot-luck. Southwestern U.S. is where you'll find this great recipe.
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 2 (32 ounce) cans black-eyed peas with jalapenos, drained
- 2 cups rice, cooked
- 1 (16 ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1⁄4 cup onion, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- Brown meat.
- Combine all ingredients in 13X9X2 casserole.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
This is really good! I changed a few things around but the basic idea remained the same. I omitted the ground beef, making this a vegetarian side dish. I used 2 cans of regular (not ranch style) black eyed peas, I used brown rice and I used mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar. The result was a tasty, savory, cheesy casserole that was spiced nicely with the garlic (I used 2 cloves of garlic) and had a tangy zip of the canned tomatoes. Thanks for the recipe!
This very good. I added 1 can whole kernnel corn, 1 can mushroom soup, 1/2 cup water & only used 1 can black eyed peas. I also seasoned the meat with the pepper & garlic salt, instead of using a glove of garlic.
I was looking for a black eyed pea recipe to make for New Years Day and came across this one. Sounded good to me! However, when I went to the store to shop (on NYE) they were completely sold out of black eyed peas (canned or dry). HAHA, probably the only day of the year that happens! I decided to get another variety of bean and picked adzuki, only to discover as I was making it today that they are considered auspicious on New Years Day in Japanese and Asian cultures - woo-hoo! We are vegetarian, so I used veggie ground beef instead. I also used black rice, which I cooked in the steamer. I then put everything in my crock pot. We were hungry so didn't wait a full 4 hours as I later saw the recipe recommended... probably only one hour. It tasted great, however, the onions weren't really cooked. So, for future I will either cook the onions first or make sure I wait the full 4 hours in the crock pot. Either way, great recipe!
