1 onion, minced

3-4 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 sweet pepper, minced

1-2 tomatoes, minced

2-3 cups cooked black eyed peas + cooking liquid

Salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin (I think anything over 2 tsp of cumin is overkill, but to each their own) to taste

Sautee onion, garlic and sweet pepper until softened and fragrant.

Add tomatoes and cook until softened.

Add beans and a bit (sorry this is an abstract amount – maybe about 3/4 a cup) of the cooking liquid.

Add in salt, pepper, chili powder, cumin. Stir.

Let simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is absorbed (about 10-15 minutes)

Remove pot from heat, and mash beans until desired consistency is achieved. Enjoy!
