As many other have, I made my own variation of this recipe and the flavor was just amazing! First, I sliced in half a stick of butter, the onion, chopped up about 7 cloves of fresh garlic and used one of the packets of crushed red pepper that you get from the pizza parlor. I used 2 cups of black-eyed peas because that was the size of the package. I boiled the beans then simmered for about 25 minutes, then drained and rinsed under cold water. I then placed the sauteed onions, garlic and crushed red pepper into my crock pot, along with the leftover Honey Baked Ham we had for Christmas, keeping the bones in the pot for the whole cooking time. Then added the beans, about 3 1/2 cups of water, salt and pepper. No cheese. I steamed some Jasmine rice and served it separately. The flavor was rich and packs a lingering punch from the little bit of red pepper. Delicious!
