Looking for a way to "kick up" those black-eyed peas you eat on New Year's day for good luck? This recipe was a prize winner in a recipe contest held by our state newspaper years ago. They called this the "peppiest, meatiest, best mess o' black eyes you're likely to taste!" Frankly, I am not a black-eye fan, but this recipe is so sensational, I gobble it up! I like it best served over cooked rice for a delicious meal. On New Year's Day, however, everyone will want just enough to guarantee good luck for the year to come.
