Top Review by Clueless in the Kit

It's was the New Year!!! Panic! I had no idea how to fix black eye peas so that our family would have good luck this year. I found this recipe; I liked and had most of the ingredients. My daughter scampered and found a mixture of macaroni, fresh presoaked black eye peas, green chilie instead of green peppers, and lots of diced bacon. I also used Mexican cheese along with the cheddar. Finally served jalapenos seperately, for those with with different heat tolerances. My family loved it....even me...I hate black eye peas.
