I tend to like spicier foods. My brother, who is a Junior in college, lives with me and he also likes things on the hot side. This dish was one our mother used to make that I liked, but even he will say my version is better.
In nonstick sauce pan cook sausage with onions and both kinds of pepper till veggies are tender. Drain grease from the meat & mix in both cans of black eyed peas (liquid too) and rice. It's that easy.
I don't add a lot of salt or pepper to this recipe because the saltiness & heat of the sausage pretty much covers it for me. Sometimes when I'm browning the sausage I will sprinkle on some soul seasoning or cajun seasoning also. Just depends on my mood.
This is good also to serve the next day after the flavors have melded together, but I would wait and add the rice after reheating.
