"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!"

1 (15 ounce) can

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 felt this was "OK". The zesty italian dressing flavor was too strong for my tastes.
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.
Delicious! To make easier, I use can of petite diced tomatoes.
I made this for a barbeque tonight. I added a few extra jalapenos and no coriander because I didn't have any and put just a bit of dried cilantro. Very good recipe.
yum, tasty and lively presentation with all the different bright colors. One change I made was to substitute the black beans for a small can of mexi-corn, otherwise I thought it to "beany". Also, used a red onion instead of yellow. Substituted a can of petite diced tomatoes drained for fresh, (just for ease). I also seeded the jalapeno peppers so it wasn't too hot. Serve with corn chips for the authentic texas way. Great party appetizer!
I crave this stuff! It goes great with a cold beer!!!! I could eat it for a meal. It is yummilicious.
I made this recipe as stated, and it was wonderful. I made with fat free dressing, and a co-worker made this recipe with regular dressing, and it tastes much better with the regular dressing. Wonderful recipe! Need to let it sit for a couple hours to let the flavors blend together.
