Expert Tips

Planning on leftovers? The rice will continue to soak up the juices, making this more of a casserole the next day. The flavor is still nice, but add a little water before reheating if you prefer a soup.

Have plenty of red pepper sauce and cornbread on hand to go with this southern treat.

Have this stew on New Year's Day. Legend has it, eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Day ensures prosperity in the coming year.
