Recipe Notes

Really yummy with fresh corn, in season now.

- I was unable to find canned black eyed peas so I soaked and cooked dried black eyed peas, according to directions on back of package. Use about 2 cups (after cooking). You need to start this step the day before. I'm sure canned black beans (rinsed and drained) would be a good sub.
