Black Eyed Pea Dip makes a flavorful appetizer. Made with just three ingredients, this black eyed pea dip couldn’t much easier or more delicious!

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.  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.

Use leftover black eyed peas or you can use one can of black eyed peas and then drain and empty them into a bowl.

 

A cup of fresh salsa or a can of drained diced spicy tomatoes with chilis.

 

 

Mix together and pour into a small baking dish.

 

 

Top with grated cheese and bake until bubbly.

 

 

Serve with tortilla chips or spoon over a side of greens.
