I made this on a whim to take to a friends dinner party. It was so easy to make, and the end result was a dip that no on had ever tried before, but really enjoyed. It has a very earthy taste and goes really well with spicy foods. TRY IT!!!

A new(at least for me), delicious way to eat black eyed peas! I didn't have pickled jalapenos, so used a little pickled daylilly buds, and added a smidgon of chipotle in adobo. Loved it, ate the whole thing. Thanks!
