Reviewed Tex-Mex Rice and Black-Eyed Peas

Jan 21, 2013 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

I used fresh black eyed peas and didn't know they needed to be cooked before using them in this recipe. I just let them boil a little longer than the 15 minutes and then added more water when I reheated them the next day. The flavor is excellent in this dish, I used canned salsa and it was tasty. I would recommend more spinach, but that's my perso"

I used this recipe on an 8lb boneless pork loin that was split down the middle and doubled the amount of rub indicated in the recipe.

It was tasty, but the bacon didn't cook on the bottom of mine, even though I left them in extra time until the edges were crispy. I would try cooking the bacon a little before putting it into the ramekins. Maybe I misunderstood and she's using pre-cooked."

Very tasty recipe, but I miss the meaty flavor of regular lasagna. This reminded me of veggie lasagna, or ricotta stuffed shells, not regular meat lasagna.

I made these with my little sister who is 10 and it was a fun, easy recipe that we could do together. We discovered that the cookies would spread out too much and loose the cookie cutter shapes if we made them 1/2" thick. We made them a little more than 1/4" thick and they were much better. Also, after reading the reviews, I cooked for less time s"

If you like syrup, pancakes and bacon, all smushed together, then this is the cupcake for you!! I made minicupcakes out of them and they're delicious! The bacon crumbles on top definitely make a difference, don't skimp!""
