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.

Love it! I did not do the red pepper flakes b/c my daughter doesn't like spice so my husband added Tobasco to his own dish. I had to substitute some of the kale with spinach but the flavor was still awesome! Will definitely make this again!!

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.
