You don't cook this recipe. It's an easy cold dip. Use a good quality hot sauce - I used Archer Farms (Target brand) Organic Garden Salsa-Medium. I also subbed black beans because I like them more than blackeyes. My favorite snack is chips & hot sauce and this is a great way to add more vitamins. It's extremely versatile - you can add just about anything else that you like. Next time I will add corn sliced avocado & a little lime juice. Read More

This is not Texas Caviar this is a can of peas and some salsa slapped together. If I take a can of turkey parts and some chicken broth it's not a deluxe Thanksgiving roast. Read More

I substituted pinto beans for the black-eyed peas because that's what I had on hand. I also used homemade salsa. The kids and I thought it was a great after-swimming snack! Read More
