    Yum! I cut back on the cayenne a little because I didn't want it too hot. Also I didn't realize it would be so saucy. Next time I will serve over rice.

    I used dried black eyed peas and this recipe worked great! It definitely needs the lime/lemon juice to cut through the richness of the coconut milk. Great meal and great the 2nd day as leftovers!
