This recipe is easy and great for parties, especially for the New Year's. This dip tastes good hot or cold. If you want a spicy dip, use 1 can black-eyed peas and 2 cans jalapeno black-eyed peas. To keep warm, put dip in slow cooker. Eat with tortilla chips or corn chips.

Made this for NYE parties and it was well received. I switched it up a little and used the southern seasoned black eyed peas and since I'm not a fan of the "cheese" from this recipe, I used a good English cheddar and cut that into small cubes and melted that into the other ingredients. I also added minced jalapeño (I had a jar of jalapeño slices that I minced up - it was probably close to a 2 tsp.). SUPER GOOD! Read More

I love the idea of adding black-eyed peas to cheese dip but without some kind of liquid this will set up very quickly into a massive piece of gluey cheese with peas imbedded in it. I added a can of Rotel tomatoes and I also added some sauteed greens (kale in this case since that's what I had on hand). It was a great end result. I was a bit too late for New Year's but there would have been my peas and greens in one swoop!: ) Read More

I'm REALLY sorry I was NOT a fan. It was gummy and starchy by contrast... I wanted to like it but just couldn't! Read More

It didn't have much flavor to it. Next time I'll add my own spices. Read More
