texas-caviar recipe

 One of my very favorites is a simplified version of what is sometimes called
 "Texas Caviar."  The first time I made it was for a Superbowl party, and it
 never made it past the kitchen table (was consumed by all us women).  Usually
 I use dry beans and cook them up, but I am sure you can use canned.
 Texas Caviar
 1 1/2 cup cooked black-eyed peas
 1 1/2 cup chunky salsa (hot, medium or mild)
 1/4 cup wine vinegar (haven't tried the balsamic in this one yet)
 freshly ground pepper
 1 tsp cilantro or parsley (dried -- can use fresh)
 Mix together.  Let marinate in the refrigerator for 3 days or longer.  Serve
 with non-fried tortilla chips.  I have found a new brand at the supermarket
 that I really like.  It is called "Vera Cruz,"  I think.  Tastes more like
 the regular corn tortilla chips.
