FAQ

Are black-eyed peas healthy?

absolutely! Rich in fiber and nutrients, black-eyed peas are a very healthy food. This recipe needs to be a little healthier to offset the large amount of cheese it contains, so that’s also a good thing.

Can I use homemade cowpeas for this dip?

definitely! Drain all liquid before adding to dip. This is one of my favorite ways to utilize leftover homemade cowpeas.

What is the early pickling method for homemade black soybeans?

Making black-eyed peas from scratch instead of opening a can makes this recipe even tastier. It can be soaked quickly to reduce cooking time. Cover clean beans with about 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Boil them for 2-3 minutes, turn off the heat, let stand for 1 hour and they are ready to go.

Compatibility with black-eyed soybean dip

Well, homemade tortilla chips are the bomb for this dip! You can also make homemade pita chips or plantain chips.

As for drinks, I love hot and spicy dips served with cold margaritas, either traditional margaritas or something a little more tropical like mango or passion fruit margaritas, and they wash this dip down beautifully.
