Use your favorite beans if you do not like these. Tasty beans without the sugar. I love the fiery taste of Tabasco™, but you might want to back off that ingredient to remove some of the blister.

This is a really good side dish with lots of flavor. You really do need to let it cook for the recommended 20 minutes to thicken and give the flavors a chance to meld. I used black beans and pintos instead of black-eyed peas added only 1 tsp of Tabasco and then put the bottle at the table for additional spiciness. As I always do with bean dishes like this I added just a splash of olive oil and vinegar right before serving. It's really low in calories and fat has good fiber not too high in carbs so you can enjoy this with a clear conscience. Served with sliced red jalapeno peppers chopped green onions and a dollop of sour cream. Read More

My gut instinct shouted at me NOT to include the ginger. It just didn t seem to belong here. Hubs talked me into taking a chance on it. I was right the ginger was just wrong. I salvaged this by rinsing it all in a wire mesh strainer and re-using the beans in another recipe. In a nutshell this recipe with its unusual inclusions of ginger and mustard was just not palatable for us. Read More

I had to cut this recipe in half to serve just my husband and I for dinner. Also I used ranch-style beans with jalapeno instead of the black beans and black-eyed peas because that's all I had. We enjoyed these very much they were well flavored and spicy just the way we like our beans. I made this as a side dish for a chile rellenos dish from this site and dinner was wonderful! Thanks so much. Read More

I liked the way this smelled as it cooked. I added 1/4 tsp lime pickle (very hot) in place of the hot sauce. I added 1 pouch of Lipton roasted garlic and onion soup mix plus 1 fresh onion. I used no salt. I put a tsp of each spice listed. I used 2 cans of 6 bean mix. I think this was tasty. Read More
