Always trust your instincts! A TABLESPOON of garlic powder? For two cans of peas? The result is inedible; and we like garlic. I'm trying to salvage it by adding more ingredients but I have a feeling I'll be throwing it out.

My family loved these. I left the rice and cheese on the side for so that people could add them if they wanted too.

Actually made this last week just for something different-turned out pretty good! I used a chuck of leftover ham instead of the jowl but that was the only change. Will try adding cabbage next time.

I made this recipie and just loved it!! I am a Southern gal and needed to make my Black-Eyed peas for the New Year. I used Bushes black-eyed peas less butter and added a little cream cheese...not too much. It was great. I am not a fan of bell peppers so I left them out. I highly recomend this recipie.

Usually we have black eyed peas left over. Today we did not. I used the butter 1 onion 1/2 of a green pepper and a bag of frozen black eyed peas. We had sausage left over from our trip to our favorite barbecue place last night so that took the place of both the sausage and the hog jowl. After reading the reviews I used a teaspoon of garlic pepper; it could have used 2 tsp. But otherwise was very tasty. We didn't use the rice or cheese. The directions on the frozen black eyed peas said to boil for 3 mins and simmer for 40 to 45 mins. They were perfectly cooked at that time.
