"Easy, delicious slow cooker recipe that uses some of those dry beans hiding in your pantry. Just about any bean can be substituted for the black-eyed peas. If you don't want to soak beans overnight, you can use the canned variety."

Do not use the dry variety beans. Must use canned beans or it turns out too dry. do not drain tomatoes or corn. Other than that a great fast and easy dish.

I thought that this recipe was good. Not fantastic, but a good meal. I didn't put the rice in, makes it more like a stew.
