I found this recipe for Black Eyed Pea Dip in Southern Living All Time Favorites. I had all of the ingredients on hand on the boat and in my pantry at home.
1/4 cup butter (I omitted this ingredient)
2 -15.8 ounce cans of black eyed peas undrained (I drained mine--I didn't want it too runny)
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
2 TBS blackened seasoning
3 green onions, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
3/4 cup chopped cooked ham (optional)
Stir peas, cheeses, seasoning, and green pepper in microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 5 or 6 minutes until cheese is melted. Add chopped ham if you choose. Serve with tortilla chips!
