Flavorful ingredients for a very special dish: excellent served with big corn chips. Take it for a potluck dinner… everybody will enjoy it.
3 (16 oz.) cans black-eyed peas, drained
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
1/2 cup finely chopped red pepper
3/4 cup finely chopped hot peppers
3/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup drained, chopped pimento
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
2/3 cup olive oil
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
Combine peas, bell peppers, hot peppers, onion, pimento and garlic. In a separate bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil and mustard and pour over the bean mixture and mix well. Season to taste with salt and Tabasco sauce. With a wooden spoon or potato masher, mash the bean mixture slightly. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Drain the "caviar" well and chill the mixture overnight. Serve with tortilla chips.
