This recipe was very good. My husband who is not a fan of beans of any kind really liked it. Very flavorful. My changes were soaking the black eyed peas for 24 hours before. Threw it all in a a 3-4 qt crockpot the greens cook down, plenty of room, you just stuff it all in there) I would have used 2 ham hock instead of one for more meat. I put in some diced ham leftover from Christmas. I forgot to add the rice so I didn't have the mushy issue. I would just make it on the side to be safe. 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes is way too much. I only did a half teaspoon and that's plenty. I used chicken broth which gives more flavor than vegetable. It was easy fix it and forget it. Tasted even better the next day. Will make again. I used a sweet cornbread recipe as it contrasted nicely with the spiciness of the dish.
