Cowboy Caviar

A special shout out to my Aunt Nola – who brings this amazing salsa to family functions. I got the recipe from her and made it today for our small group’s football party. So awesome. Serve with “scoops” style chips — you’ll want big bowl chips to scoop up all the goodness in this stuff! Nola’s original recipe calls for a can of black eyed peas with jalapeños, but since I couldn’t find those at the grocery store, I did regular black eyed peas and added in some fire roasted chiles.
