This was a very easy recipe, but I did tweak it some to add personality. I think next time I would cook the beans for less time as they turned to mush by the end of the cook time. I added some spicy brown mustard at the end, and served with kale greens that I cooked with lemon and garlic.

I made this meal in no time and my family loved it! It was so easy and the ingredients were things I had in the house. I would definitely make this again.

New favorite New Year dish! Decreasing cholesterol, fat, sodium is a priority for me, so, bacon & salt were omitted,but I added: garlic,bell pepper, no salt chkn bouillon(Herb-Ox by Hormel). Instead of crushed red pepper, 1/4 tsp. ground red pepper, 1/4 tsp. white pepper, & lean ham instead of bacon. Served with rice on the side & turnip greens.

Good but the ratio of rice to beans was way off, are you sure it's only 1 cup of beans? Next time I will use 1 cup of beans but only 1/2 cup of rice, the rice in the first try took over the whole dish. Mine looked nothing like the picture above.

Pretty solid meal- only subs I did was use turkey bacon instead of regular and added maybe 20 oz of tomatoes (I had some homemade canned I wanted to use up). It has a little kick, just a warning. I served it with sauteed kale splashed with a bit of lemon juice and chicken stock (trying to get the bitter out a little). I only stirred it once, and all the beans stayed in tack. Would make again considering it is crazy easy and is loaded with good nutrients and fiber!

Made this today for NYD and fam enjoyed it. But don't stir it too much. It can easily turn into mush. I'm about to look for a recipe for hoe cakes using the leftover peas. My 9 year old mushed them on his plate and made his own hummus. Every man for himself today....
