Wow, so so so good! I followed "Big Rev"s suggestions of reducing the cinnamon, leaving out some spices, sautéing the spices with the onions, adding chicken, and skipping the water and using all broth. I still think there should be more broth, so I'd probably go with 3 cups next time. I did not add the bell pepper (I am allergic), and I did not have Cumin or coriander so I substituted with a pinch of curry powder which has both in it. I also used a fresh sweet potato instead of canned (just simmer it 45 minutes instead of 20). I found in my store's produce section "reconstituted" black eyed peas (brand name Melissa’s) which basically just saved me having to soak the dried peas overnight (I don’t like the canned version). All in all, this was a tasty dish and I plan to make it again for a dinner party in a few weeks.
