Recipe by PalatablePastime

Black-eyed peas are considered to be "Texas Caviar", and they are the main theme in this spicy dip. Serve with warm tortilla chips.

This is essentially the same recipe as what I call "Oklahoma Caviar". The only difference is I use 1 can of shoe-peg corn instead of hominy. It makes a great side salad for covered dish dinners, too.
