    Dancer^'s Note:

    This is a wonderful recipe to create with black-eyed peas leftover from another meal. Should you not have left over black-eyed peas, substitute 4 cups of canned black-eyed peas, drained.

    1. 1
      If using left over black-eyed peas, include any of the ham or bacon seasoning to enhance the dip.
    2. 2
      Measure out 4 cups and place in a sieve or strainer to drain for approximately 10 minutes.
    3. 3
      Removing this excess moisture from the cooked peas will guarantee a creamier dip.
    4. 4
      In a large sauce pan, melt butter over medium-high heat.
    5. 5
      Add onions, celery and garlic and sauté 2 to 3 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add jalapeño pepper and chopped green chilies.
    7. 7
      Cook 2 to 3 additional minutes and add half of the black-eyed peas.
    8. 8
      Simmer 2 minutes, add cheese and stir until melted.
    9. 9
      Pour contents into the bowl of a food processor and blend until puréed.
    10. 10
      Transfer to a decorative serving bowl and add remaining black-eyed peas.
    11. 11
      Stir well to incorporate.
    12. 12
      Add chopped pimento and parsley for garnish.
    13. 13
      Season to taste with salt and pepper.

      Thought I would try something new for the New Year with black-eyed peas. This caught my eye and I gave it a try. Wonderful!! My highest rating, I loved it. To make it a lower on the fat content, I used 1/2 the cheese and canned peas. Also fried the veggies in lower fat vegetable spread instead of the butter. It was fabulous. Serve with a low fat cracker or baked chip and it's way lower in fat, almost healthy, lol. Thanks
