Even though the reviews on this recipe were not favorable, I decided to try it with some *tweaks* as it is low in sodium. I made it with partially cooked black eyed peas (from dried) and then roasted them in a 325 degree oven (in a single layer) on parchment paper for over two hours, stirring every 10 minutes. They came out crunchy without charring, but the seasoning (used as directed) was COMPLETELY lacking in flavor. There was no chili powder *bite*, the cumin fell flat, and even with an additional sprinkle of salt, it wasn't enough to pull any real flavor out to save the recipe. Even with additional effort, it is truly not worth the time or energy. I'm tossing them out in the yard for the squirrels.
