This is a wonderful recipe however I used canned peas and made it just a couple of hours ahead of time. It keeps well for a few days. Also great with fritos. Read More

This recipe in general was good but it was INCREDIBLY too much onion. One pound of peas was so overpowered by 1 1/2 cups of onion that it was all you could taste...and taste...and taste! I've made similiar recipes before and they were a big hit. This one would have been perfect with about 1/3 of the onion. Read More

Good dip. I made it with canned black-eyed peas and cut back a little on the onion (used red and yellow onion). I think a little fresh cilantro would be a great addition too. Thanks Gabrielle! Read More
