Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar
New Year's Day may be past, but you'll still want to try this easy crowd-pleaser, Cowboy Caviar. There's no fish involved, just a few canned goods, namely black-eyed peas. This dip would be fabulous  as a side for grilled chicken or a topper on tacos.

We were invited to our friends' house for New Years Day and I was asked to bring a "fun black-eyed pea dip". I asked whether she wanted me to bring a hot or cold dip. I couldn't decide which to make, so I ended up bringing both. If the secret to a lucky new year is eating black-eyed peas, then we are covered.

Cowboy Caviar

1 (15 oz.) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz. ) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (10 oz.) can tomatoes with green chiles (Rotel)
2 cups frozen roasted corn, thawed
1 cup Italian salad dressing
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1/4 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
chopped jarred jalapenos to taste

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least one hour for flavors to develop. Serve with tortilla chips.
The hot dip I made is on The Pioneer Woman's website. It is called Zannie's Black-Eyed Pea Dip and it is delicious! Even if you don't normally eat black-eyed peas, you'll want to pin this to make for next New Year's Day. So, do you traditionally eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day? How do you prepare them?
