Black Eyed Peas

This is definitely a comfort dish with some southern charm. We absolutely adore these black eyed peas and if you're looking for an additional protein to complete the meal, brown some ground beef and season it and throw into a serving of these black eyed peas for a nice hearty bowl of food!
