Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Dip with Green Chiles for #TripleSBites

Welcome to my third post for #TripleSBites, a super sexy, saucy, and spicy group of twenty bloggers sharing recipes for “Valentines and Beyond.”


Black-Eyed Pea Dip is a staple for us at any New Year’s Day celebration.   I have seen similar recipes labeled as “Okie Caviar” and “Texas Caviar.”   Whatever it’s called this stuff is addictive.

I like this particular creation because it contains a boatload of veggies and our ever-loved green chiles.

Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Dip (with Green Chiles)
based on Paula Deen’s Black-Eyed Pea Dip

2 (15 0z.) cans black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 (12 oz.) pkg. frozen corn*
1 c. Roma tomatoes, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped (Use a green, yellow, red, orange or a combination.)
1/2 c.  yellow onion, chopped
2 (4 oz.) cans hot hatch green chiles
1/2 c. red wine vinegar
1 T. balsamic vinegar
1 t. fine sea salt
1/2 t. freshly cracked pepper
1/2 to 1 t. ground chipotle powder (Your preference on spiciness.)
1/4 t. honey
1 t. Gourmet Garden cilantro paste
1/2 t. Gourmet Garden garlic paste
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 c. vegetable oil

Place drained and rinsed peas, corn, tomatoes, peppers, onions and green chilis in a large bowl and toss together.

Place the remaining ingredients in a blender and blend until emulsified.   Pour over pea mixture and gently stir.

Cover and refrigerate.

Serve with Frito Scoops.

*The corn can be added frozen because this dip is better the longer it sets in the refrigerator, giving the corn a chance to thaw.  If you want to serve it right away, defrost the corn.
