  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetarian, Mexican, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Dried black eyed peas
  • 4 c Water
  • 1/4 ts Red chile flakes, crushed
  • 1/2 ts Cumin
  • 2 tb Olive oil
  • 3/4 c Green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Celery ribs, thinly sliced
  • 3 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 c Mexican style stewed Tomatos


Rinse beans, cover in water & bring to a boil. Cook for 3 mins, remove
from heat & let sit for 60 mins. Drain & rinse. Cover with fresh water,
bring back to a boil & cook for 30 mins. Drain & set side.

Saute chile flakes in oil for 1 min. Add green onions, celery, garlic &
beans. Cook over medium heat, stirring, for 5 mins. Stir in tomatoes.
Reduce heat & simmer for 30 mins. Serve hot.

MARK'S NOTE: I really do not think that black-eyed peas need this much
cooking. When making this dish, I omit the soaking stage & just cook for
30 minutes & then let them finish cooking with the remaining ingredients.

KATIE'S NOTE: I read Mark's note, and I say you should do the rinse.
Rinsing this way reduced flatulance later. :)
