I love this dip so much! There is such great flavor that is packed with fiber, antioxidants, and deliciousness! I won’t get started on fiber right now since I am going to past my entire lecture on the health benefits of fiber soon! I originally found this dish at Costco and one day they didn’t carry it. I was pretty upset so I had to come up with my own version of the dish to satisfy my craving. I have added pasta and turned it into a pasta salad that was great for a potluck supper. These ingredients can usually be found in a pantry and used when you need to whip up a dish real quick!
1 Can Black beans, rinsed and drained
1 Can Black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/4 -1/3 Green bell pepper, diced
¼-1/3 Red Bell pepper, diced
½ Medium to small yellow onion, diced
¾ Cup Italian dressing
Dash of smoked paprika (I like a really heavy dash!)
Black pepper to taste
Cayenne pepper to taste (optional to give it heat)
Chips to scoop the dip into
Mix all the ingredients together well.
Note: This recipe gets better with time in the refrigerator but it is still delicious right out of the bowl!
This is a great recipe to make into a pasta salad. Just add pasta and serve!
These ingredients can be added as well:
1 can of corn or 1 ear of fresh corn cooked and cut off the cob (frozen corn can be used as well about 1/3 cup cooked/heated) 1 can of petit diced tomatoes or 1 fresh tomato diced can be added too both of those are drained
PS: I know you are thinking, “Where is the photo!” There will be a photo of this dish soon!
