Directions

  1. Place the corn into a saucepan, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the corn is fully cooked, about 2 minutes. Drain the corn in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Mix together the warm corn, black-eyed peas, ham, celery, and onion in a salad bowl.
  3. Whisk together the sour cream, ketchup, cilantro, Cajun seasoning, and hot pepper sauce in a bowl until smooth. Stir the dressing lightly into the black-eyed pea mixture until thoroughly mixed. Serve immediately.

Wow, what a refreshing change from plain old black eyed peas for New Years ... and they don't have to cook for hours and hours! I can't wait for everyone to try this tomorrow. It's delicious. I only omitted the celery because we don't care for it and it was still perfect! Thanks!

This dish is okay. Put sour cream on anything and it's going to be pretty good. I did substitute carrot for celery because that's what I had on hand.

I needed to use a few cans of Black Eyed Peas..found your recipe. It was a hit with my family. The only things I changed was more onion we like onion, and I used Trader Joes Cilantro dressing instead of dried cilantro.

this was very easy and delish, used cilantro paste insted of dried. Even my husband said it was good and he usually says nothing.
