This is a really good recipe. I liked the "kick" that the dressing has due to all the spices and chili powder. I used dried blackeyed peas instead of canned (LOVE my Instant Pot!!) and doubled the dressing because I like mine a little wetter. Other than that I didn't change a thing. This one's a keeper!!
