Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Here is our recipe for black-eyed pea dip. We serve it warm with Fritos.
2 c. Ranch -style black-eyed peas, drained (no snaps)
3 jalapeno peppers (adjust according to your taste)
1/4 medium onion
1 can chopped green chilies
1 garlic clove
1/4 lb. Old English Cheese (This comes in a little jar--I found it in the grocery store next to the jars of pimento cheese)
1/4 lb. butter

Mix first 5 ingredients in food processor. On medium heat in saucepan, melt butter and cheese. Mix processed ingredients into sauce pan. Heat through.

I use one can of black-eyed peas and one can of black-eyed peas with jalapenos and omit the 3 jalapeno peppers. (I know that is more than 2 cups--but it turns out okay.)

We'll be eating it today to celebrate the new year and Bonza Bottler Day!
