  1. Add seasonings, including salt and ground black pepper.
  2. Serve at warm temp. With Mexican-style flavoring, an excellent substitute for other beans.
an excellent way to prepare black-eyed peas is using the pressure cooker. It's very quick and easy. Just sort and rinse 2 cups or so of dry black-eyed peas.

Place in pressure cooker with water to cover peas by an inch or so. You can add garlic cloves, bay leaf, sage leaves, etc. Close the lid and heat until cooking pressure is reached. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 3 min. Take off heat and let cool naturally. That's it!
