What do you bring to your neighbors house, along with 3 of his friends who is a firefighter ? CHILI !! So thats what I did. Made this the slow cooker method. Made this for 5 hungary men, during the hockey game. I used sweet paprika, 2 chipotle chilies, and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes. This was nicely seasoned, and definately flavored to a tee. I, myself did not care for the black-eyed peas, but everyone else did. Great enough for 2 servings for each of us, and the rest of the guys really enjoyed this very unique recipe. A couple of them had never tried black-eyed peas in chili, as I ran off (xeroxed) 4 extra copies of this recipe to them. Also had plenty of heat, but not overpowering. I myself will try this in the future, halving the recipe, one stovetop, and one crockpot, one with the black-eyed peas, and one with out. Excellent creation you have come up with, and good luck in the contest.
