I was looking around for something to use my black-eyed peas in and came across this. It came out really nicely, and quite tasty indeed! I did end up replacing a few things based on what I had on hand. Lacking bacon, I browned up a couple of spicy beef sausages (diced) and a bit of ground beef to make it a little more dynamic. I also added in some diced green pepper and went with white instead of brown on the rice (a preference thing). I used dry peas that I soaked and cooked beforehand and skipped on the tomato, and only used the cheese as a topping (which ended up getting mixed in anyway). It struck me as a sort of a down-home Southern style jambalaya. It's definitely going on the menu again!

I made this tonight for the first time, as written, though substituting tomatoes with jalapenos because we did not have hot sauce. Overall, it is a good, filling dish, even the kids liked it. The one thing that my husband and I agreed on is that the black eyed peas would be better replaced with chili beans or something with a bit more personality.
