Black Eyed Pea Rollup

- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 15.5 oz (one can) Black eyed peas (drained and rinsed)
- 1 jalapeno (chopped)
- 1/2 cup vegetable stock
- 1 clove garlic (minced)

Heat oil over medium in a skillet. Add garlic, stock, jalapeno and peas and cook until warmed through. The peas will soak up the liquid and plump while they are cooked. Serve as a salsa or in a tortilla.
