For New Years my families have different traditions on what to eat to have good luck in the New Year.
My husband's family eats oyster stew.
And my side of the family eats Hoppin Johns (a Southern black eyed pea dish).
Gotta say I really don't care for either, sorry Grandma!
So what I came up with is a Cowboy Caviar with black eyed peas.
Here is what you will need:
2 15oz Cans of drained black eyed peas
1/2 Cup of sliced green onions
1/2 Of an onion diced, you can use any color purple, white or yellow
2 Red and green bell peppers diced
4 Cloves of chopped garlic
1/2 Small can of diced jalapenos
A dash of salt
1/4 Teaspoons of black pepper
4 Tablespoons of cooking oil
3 Tablespoons of cider vinegar
*You can always add more, onions, garlic, peppers or jalapenos to adjust it to your liking
Mix all and chill for at least an hour
Serve with chips
Enjoy & Have a Happy New Year!
