Black-Eyed Pea Dip

Kitchen Tested
  • Yield 10 servings

This dip is perfect for New Year's Day, since black-eyed peas are eaten for luck in the South, traditionally on the first day of a new year.

Serve this dip with low-fat chips.


1 onion, chopped
1/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno peppers
2 (15-ounce) cans black-eyes peas, drained
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies
4 ounces reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese, shredded


  1. In a pot coated with nonstick cooking spray, saute the onion, green pepper, and jalapenos over medium-low heat until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the black-eyed peas and stir in the flour. Gradually add the tomatoes and cheese, stirring until melted and hot throughout. Makes about 5 cups.
