      Quite good! I used ground turkey sausage which added a good bit of flavor. I did have to add more liquid to keep it from going dry. I think two or three cans of tomatoes would have suited my taste better.

      Good simple meal. I could not find spicy black-eyed peas but adding cajun seasoning and chili powder gave me the flavor I was looking for. I cut the recipe in half, except I did use the full can of tomatoes. And it served 3. Thanks for sharing!

      I made this, tonight, and it was delicious! For just the two of us, I halved the recipe, except for the green bell pepper and tomatoes, of which I used the full amount. I also didn't have any fresh onion, and since my husband hates onion, anyhow, I used 1/2 cup reconstituted dried onion (I soaked the onion flakes in boiling water for a few minutes before adding them to the pan), undrained. I used 1/2 of a 14 ounce package of meatless GimmeLean! ground beef style for the meat alternative. And I had to add about 2 TBSP. olive oil to saute' the pepper, onion and GimmeLean! I made the following adaptations for a low sodium diet: used low sodium canned black-eyed peas, "no salt added" diced tomatoes in their own juice and omitted the salt. I added 3/4 tsp. sweet California chili powder to make up for not having spicy black-eyed peas. (GimmeLean! has 475.5 mg sodium per serving when portioned at 7 ounces for two servings, which, when the 47.5 mg sodium from the half can of black-eyed peas is added, put me a little over my personal limit of 500 mg sodium per meal. So I may reduce the amount of meat alternative used, the next time I make this, and perhaps add more black-eyed peas instead.)
