Black Eye Pea Curry Ghanaian Style is one of the most tasty ways of preparing a bowl of beans I’ve ever had. You can control the level of hot & spicy by the kind of hot pepper you use (or don’t). I put Scotch Bonnet in this recipe, because that’s how my wife prepared it for me. But you can use jalapeno, Serrano, Thai Birds-Eye, whatever you like. Also remember it is the seeds that are the hottest part of a hot chili pepper, so leaving them in or out is another way of adjusting to your tastes.
