Updated Oct 2, 2008

  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1 can (15 to 16 ounces) black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups lightly packed spinach leaves

    Heat wok or 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; rotate wok to coat side.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Measuring all your ingredients and cooking the rice the night before will help you get this dinner done in no time.
  • tip 2
    Need to pump up the heat? Put a bottle of red pepper sauce on the table so guests can add as much fire as they want.
  • tip 3
    Serve with biscuits and fresh fruit for a quick weeknight meal. For any meat lovers in the family, sprinkle 1 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled, onto each individual serving. Or keep it vegetarian, and sprinkle each serving with bacon flavor chips.
  • tip 4
    Despite their southern roots, black-eyed peas originated in Asia. These small beige beans with black circular “eyes” are also called cowpeas.
  • tip 5
    Try canned black-eyed peas with jalapeño chilies in this dish. Omit the ground red pepper, or keep it in if you like plenty of heat.
