Black eyed peas are one of my favorite pantry staple foods. You can soak dried black eyed peas overnight and cook them during the day for a tasty traditional dish with cornbread and can make so many other delicious dishes.

A favorite of mine is to make this simple and easy spicy black eyed pea dip.  I have to tell you though, I cheat a little in making this. I use canned black eyed peas and a canned spicy diced tomato blend, like Ro-tel. It goes together so quickly and even makes a delicious topping to go along with cooked greens or bread.

Here’s how I make it.

    Blacked peas never run low in my house so I can’t want to make this for DS when he gets home :) This is right up his alley.

    Oh my… This looks incredible! I have recently become addicted to the multigrain Tostitos scoops, and I’m thinking this is the perfect thing to dip them in :)
