The amounts will depend on the number of people you want to serve. I suggest going by the package suggestions for the black eye peas and rice, then one bell pepper and one onion for every four or five people. Adjust the seasonings according to taste.

Black eye peas


Bell pepper


Garlic powder


Salt pork or other seasoning meat

  1. Cook the rice in your normal method, but I think a rice cooker is the best kitchen gadget.

2. Boil the black eye peas with the pepper, onion, salt pork, and garlic powder.

3. Once both are done (bell pepper, onion, and peas should be fork tender), pour off some of the juice from the peas and stir in rice.

4. I like to leave some of the pea liquid to flavor the rice.
