"I like black-eyed peas, so I'm always looking for something to do with them. This was good but the black-eyed peas seem to get lost in all the other ingredients and sauce."

"Loved this as a dip with tortilla chips. I served with sour cream. Some jalapenps might have kicked this up a notch."

"I made this for our Memorial weekend party. For me, it was missing something. All I tasted was sauce, but one flavor came through. Not sure that I will make this again."
