I made this the first time this New Year's eve. I was going to friends and needed an appetizer to take. Everyone raved (and I only made it an hour before). Then I took it the next week to a football watching party. Again raves. Both women have since then made the recipe themselves, which is a testimony to how good it is. While I am not one to measure, I basically make this recipe as is. Complex flavors with a surprising slight sweet taste (but not too much). Great go-to recipe. Healthy and tasty.


Help! I've made this awesome recipe and I can't stop eating it! I couldn't find canned black eyed peas so I used my favorite - black beans - and it is probably just as tasty. I've gotta go now, I need to make more of this tasty recipe!


Just made this for Christmas Eve and it was a great success! Just a few changes...I used a 16oz can of Mexican petite diced tomatoes instead of the chopped Romas. They had jalapeno peppers so did not add any more. I used Splenda instead of 2 T sugar and I added a can of Mexicali corn. Yummy!
