Here's a spicy Texas favorite. Black-eyed peas and black beans are marinated in a fiery, flavorful mixture. This is great with tortilla chips or bread -- and plenty of cold iced tea!

This is really good, a refreshing difference from bottled salsa. I did add corn to ours. We also decided this tasted better the next day, but the dressing was too strong tasting after only a couple of hours. So I tried it again with 1/2 Italian dressing and 1/2 roasted red pepper vinegret dressing. We really liked that. I also used red, yellow and orange bell peppers, and a couple of times a bit of avacado. I Will definitely be using the recipe regularly.

I originally tasted this while living in San Antonio. The recipe I was given used 1 each green, yellow and red bell peppers, and diced tomatoes instead to make it easier to scoop and dip. Looks like confetti - great for a party! One thing is missing: be sure to add a can of hominy. Serve with Frito's for true Texas flavor.
