Southwest Black-Eyed Pea Dip | Southern Living

This cheesy appetizer will be the talk of any game day gathering. We took the ingredients in Texas caviar (a classic chilled Southern dip made with black-eyed peas) and turned them into a warm and gooey multi-layered dip topped with diced tomatoes, zesty cilantro, and spicy jalapeños.

Best of all, Creamy Southwest Black-Eyed Pea Dip can be made in advance. Before you know it, this dip will become your new signature dish for game day parties or any get-together with family and friends!
