  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped

  • ½ bunch green onions, sliced, white parts and tops separated

  • 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained

  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning

  • ½ (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  • 2 tablespoons sour cream, or more to taste

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar-Monterey Jack cheese blend


  1. Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  2. Heat oil in an oven-proof skillet over medium heat; stir in yellow onion, white parts of the green onions, and jalapeno. Cook and stir until the onions have softened and turned translucent, 4 to 5 minutes.

  3. Stir in black-eyed peas, paprika, and Creole seasoning; reduce heat to low. Stir in cream cheese and sour cream until melted. Top with shredded cheese blend.

  4. Place in the preheated oven and broil until cheese is melted and golden, about 4 minutes. Garnish with green onion tops.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any oil you want. Cajon seasoning can be used in place of Creole, and a white queso blend cheese can be used for the Cheddar-Monterey Jack blend.

I use seasoned vegetarian black-eyed peas.
