My Favorite New Year’s Day Recipes, Black Eyed Pea Dip Recipe, Easy If You Can Open Cans
Meaty and easy to whip up, you simply brown ground sirloin. Remember to always use meat ending in a “loin” or “round” because it is the leanest cut of meat. Next, saute onion, open and dump cans, stir in cheese, and you have the most fabulous Black-Eyed Pea Dip recipe you whipped up in minutes. It does not get much simpler than that! It is important to drain the black-eyed peas or any beans because draining and rinsing beans reduces the sodium. This dip goes great with pitta chips. I also have a wonderful and easy Taco Dip from KITCHEN 101 I make for New Year’s Eve dips. Enjoy and have a Happy New Year’s!
