Black-Eyed Pea Salsa

Black-Eyed Pea Salsa

Anyone around here March Madness fans?  I honestly never watch college basketball (we are huge Utah Jazz fans at our house), but we do think March Madness is fun.  We like filling out our brackets and watching a game here or there.  I find it more fun to watch the college games when I have a $5 stake in who wins :).

Anyways, with March Madness just around the corner, I thought I would come up with a fun appetizer/dip to serve while watching the games, or really to enjoy anytime you want.  This Black-Eyed Pea Salsa is super simple to throw together and packed full of nutrients, making it a delicious and healthy option for game nights.  I like to make up a big batch of Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips to use for dipping, and I am then officially in chips and dip heaven!

This salsa also tastes great as a salad.  Pile any leftovers on a bunch of spinach and you have a super quick and healthy lunch.  You won’t even need additional salad dressing, which is always a plus.
