This was a really wonderful recipe, so simple so it would be great for anyone that is just learning to cook. It was very flavorful too but not overdone! I didn't have any chicken thighs so I just used cut up chicken breasts. This also makes a lot a whole crockpot full so it is wonderful for potlucks or big crowds.
I made this recipe twice and both times had to add seasonings to it after it had cooled. Something didn't taste quite right and I think it was the andouille sausage that gave it an odd taste. I made it again today with some changes and it is SPECTACULAR.
Used 2 cans of black-eyed peas
Doubled the tomatoes as well, but used one can of stewed tomatoes and one can fire roasted.
Used a smoked sausage ring instead of the kielbasa
used chorizo sausage instead of andouille
2 tbsp of worchestershire
doubled the parsley and thyme
I liked the recipe without my modifications but thought I would like it better if I could make some changes, and it suited my taste buds much better this time. I will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Thank you for sharing this!
I am a college student who just bought a slow cooker. This is the first recipe that I have made in my slow cooker, and I never thought that any food I made would ever taste this good. I will be making this recipe many times in the future.
Amazing!! I made this the other night for my book club and my friends are still talking about this recipe. Definitely will make this again. Give this recipe a try!
This is an easy meal for those who are on the go. Perfect dinner for those rainy nights.
