This week, Sunday Supper is celebrating the great American tradition of football. It’s a time when people gather around the television to watch their favorite teams.


At least this is what my husband tells me happens. I grew up in more of a hockey-loving household than a football-loving one. Despite 6 years of marriage, his love of football (college football, to be more specific, but football in general) hasn’t rubbed off on me. While he’s watching the game, I’m feeding him and whatever friends he’s invited over, and then hiding away with a book or my knitting.

While I might not enjoy the game, I do enjoy feeding friends. The recipe I’m sharing with you this week is a version of a dish I had years ago, something someone brought to our house for a party. It’s a great, hearty alternative to chips and salsa/guac. I made mine mild, but you can easily bump up the heat if you prefer.

  1. I must admit that this is one of those dishes that sounded odd to me on the idea, cold beans and all. But I love every version I have tried. I have never had it with black eyed peas before, so guess what we are having next? And I can’t wait! This will be a perfect snack while playing yard games this summer!

  2. Mmmm! This looks so delish. I love black-eyed peas. Thanks so much for sharing this yummy recipe with us at the Whimsical Wednesdays Link Party!

  3. I’m a hockey fan too…it started with college and continued on into the pros as students left college and went into the majors. It probably helped that I personally knew the kids playing who went on to be in the pros! This is a great party food, I have pinned it!
