This is a perfect recipe for one of those days when you seriously have no time or energy to spend on dinner. We just got back from an amazing weekend in good ‘ole bulldog country and I was looking for something quick and easy to make so I could spend my time on more important things… like unpacking and convincing myself that waking up for work tomorrow isn’t going to be totally miserable.
Time: 10 minutes
Level: SUPER easy
1/2 c. bell peppers and onion mix, frozen
1/2 c. ham or smoked sausage, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 can crowder peas, drained but reserve 1/2 of the liquid
1 tbsp. hot sauce
2 c. rice, cooked
sour cream, optional topping
salsa, optional topping
In a pan, over medium high heat, sauté peppers and onion and ham or sausage, about 4 minutes.
Add crowder peas, reserved liquid, and hot sauce. Cook for an additional 5-7 minutes.
Serve over cooked rice and top with sour cream and salsa, if desired. Yum!
– Try using black eyed peas instead of crowders.
– Serve over cornbread instead of rice.
