      Oh my goodness but this is good! Do you know what got my attention as much as the grits? The fresh basil in the salsa! I'm sure you could easily substitute pink/pinto/black beans for the black eyed peas. Added to this cookbook: Book #237257 Thanks, Impera! PS It might help to post the salsa recipe under the ingredients' list. I hadn't noticed the salsa recipe in the directions until fairly recently. A friendly suggestion. fyi
