Cheesy Black-Eyed Pea Jalapeno Dip

text-black-eyed-2

Weekends for us either seem to be so busy lately. Not that I’m complaining, I love to get out of the house and explore new things, but I also like to just relax on the couch sometimes, watch movies all day and pretend like I have absolutely nothing better to do. Last Sunday was one of those types of days, very lazy. After a very busy week and crazy Saturday, we decided to do much of nothing. So to go along with our couch potato behavior, I decided to whip up some tasty dip for our veggies and tortillas so we would have something tasty to munch on while watching some great movies, like Super 8.

For this dip, I used Lipton’s Recipe Secrets Onion recipe soup and dip mix. You know that dry mix you add to a tub of sour cream and get the tastiest onion dip ever? This dip is made pretty close, I did add sour cream, but I also added a can of mashed up black-eyed peas, a small can of diced jalapenos, and lots of shredded cheese. Then instead of serving it cold, I placed the dip in a baking dish and baked it until hot and melty in the oven.

The dip turned out beautifully, with the perfect amount of spice and cheesy goodness. I served this garnished with green onions, tortilla chips and fresh veggies for dipping. It made the perfect afternoon family snack.
