      Very filling. very satisfying, Not fattening and on top of it all - it was delish! Kids love it, Adults love it and it's good for you. Add this one to the list of "practically perfect foods".

      Everyone including our 4 year old loved this recipe! I only had canned black eyed peas on hand so I used those (undrained) and did not need to add the chicken broth or water. I actually ended up using the chicken broth to cook the rice with. Instead of ham I used ground beef and it came out wonderful. Thank you for sharing, I will be making this again!

      This is so comforting and good, and it made my house smelling AMAZING. It was a bit wet, so I used a slotted spoon to serve it over the rice. I used half the red pepper and added Louisiana hot sauce to the bowls of those who wanted it. Didn't want to start it out too hot because of my 3-year-old, who, by the way, said to me, "Mommy I like these beans you made!" That NEVER happens, hence the five star review. Thanks for a keeper that pleased the whole family! :-)
