Black Eyed Peas with Swiss Chard instant pot

Jennifer Scott


I just got my Instant Pot and wanted to make black eyed peas. This is a Frankenstein recipe from several I found, but didn't really take a shine to. So, I made my own! It is DELICIOUS. My picky vegetarian daughter had 2 servings! Try it! Soooo easy!
