"Very good reipce and healthy! I left out the hot pepper and was tasty. Would be good with cucumbers, tomatoes, etc. Will make again. A pretty presentation dish. Nice for a Christmas dish, red and green peppers colors."

"Enjoyed this dip very much. The only tweeking I did was added a can of golden hominy and a dash of cumin. Cilantro would be good in it too."

"This is almost like a recipe that I have done many times called "Redneck Caviar". In place of the black-eyed peas, I use black beans and also add a can of Rotel with Cilantro."
