Good Luck Black Eyed Pea Salsa

In the South, eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day is thought to bring prosperity in the new year. Christmas cooking usually cleans out my cupboards, so the tradition of peas, collard “greens” and cornbread usually forces me to the grocery at the last minute to make a New Year’s meal. Does this tale even promise true? Who knows?! But I consider it too risky to break the tradition!

I plan to spice things up with a spin on my black eyed peas this year! This bowl of prosperity can be served with tortilla chips for a sure crowd-pleaser!
(If you live in Oxford, try the Las Delicias tortilla chips sold at Chicory Market. They are a NT2C staff favorite!)
