I don't make a lot of peas. The husband doesn't like peas so I just avoid them. I couldn't resist this though when I saw the recipe.
Hubs works some evenings so I just waited until then. I don't think he even knew it existed in the house.
I, of course, added a can of beans, to up the protein. Oh and the bacon was oh so good in this. Bacon truly does make everything better.
I ate this the first day on a corn tortilla as a wrap. Then the leftovers I ate with a bit of lettuce, just as a salad. Both were awesome and I'll make it again. When the husband works of course. :-)
