"I made this recipe for dinner tonight and it turned out great. I did not have tomato juice and instead of black eyed peas, I used a can of white cannelini beans instead. I thought it was quite yummy. I put some crescent rolls in the oven and they paired great with the hearty stew. Next time I might make it with white potatoes instead of sweet potatoes to see how it turns out."
