I knew this would be a hit in our family. DH loves black-eyed peas. I did not have the tomatoes called for so added a rib of chopped celery with a couple of small green bell peppers. As I sat her typing the review I realized I left off the red bell peppers. They were not missed at all. This was served topped with sliced green onions, brown rice and cornbread on the side.

SUPER and reheats well ( did add chicken broth when reheating to keep from sticking) I skipped the red peppers as well and used a container of frozen homecooked black-eyed peas which worked well.
