This is my first review and I'm happy to report it's a great one! I added a few ingredients namely a few additional garlic cloves a small handful of minced ginger a can of Rotel tomatoes and some dried basil and oregano. Also instead of using canned black-eyed peas I used dried and pressure cooked them beforehand (took only 10 minutes). Served with avocado slices. What a great way to start out the New Year! Read More

This is my husband's favorite vegetarian recipe! We have it once a week. We sometimes add homemade salsa to the mixture in the tortilla for more zing. Great recipe!! Read More

I've made this several times now and we really enjoy it. I do have to tripe the recipe to feed my large family. I also alternate between grilled corn tortillas and whole wheat ones. I also add more garlic than the recipe calls for (we love garlic) and I add a couple drops of liquid smoke seasoning.This is terrific with sour cream and guacamole. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This is another favorite in our home. I use a pound of dried black eyed peas soak them cook them and then adjust the recipe accordingly. We each eat 2-4 of these for dinner then have leftovers for a couple days. (They are even better the next day!) I've made them with & without smoke seasoning. I like them with but it is great either way. I also choose to use corn tortillas but again that is just a personal choice. (If you DO use corn tortillas you need to heat each of them on a very hot skillet before using them.) Read More

Simple great recipe. I added an extra clove of garlic and omitted the vegetable stock. I think any stock would make this too liquidy. Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream. Read More

This is a great and very tasty recipe but I'm not sure how they can claim this serves 4. It was barely enough to fill 3 tortillas. I recommend at least doubling the recipe. Read More

I thought this came out really good. However I added pickled jalapenos instead of fresh and tripled the recipe to fill 8 tortillas. I also allowed it to "cook down" so that there was virtually no liquid. Distinguishable citrus flavor - tangy and delicious! Serve with sour cream. Read More
