Black Eyed Pea Casserole- fun for New Years Day! "Oh, and about those black-eyed peas… tradition says that the peas– since they swell when they cook– are said to bring prosperity to those who eat them on New Year’s Day. I guess it’s worth a shot, right?"
Did you know black -eyed peas were one of the few foods successfully grown during the colonization of the Colonies? Sorry, I don't remember which one but it wasn't one of the New England Colonies! Black-Eyed Pea Casserole....sounds great!
Cheesy Chipotle Chicken and Rice **RACHEL'S NOTE** Left out the paprika and chipotle powder, because i prefer a more mexican food flare. added tons of cilantro because that's how i roll, came out DELISH! the red bell peppers make it such a gorgeous color!
