Cheese Peas

Samantha Dean


My mother made these every holiday and now her daughters and granddaughters do too! Not sure where it originated from but Mom said she got it from her ex-inlaws who lived in Oklahoma. They are always a hit, even with people who don't like peas and so simple to make!! :)

1 small box
velveeta cheese
2 can(s)
le sueur very early young tender peas.
6 oz
evaporated milk

Directions Step-By-Step

Dice cheese into small cubes for easy melting. Open and drain peas completely.
Pour evaporated milk into a medium saucepan. Over medium/low heat add a few cubes of cheese at a time, stirring constantly until all of the cheese is melted into the sauce.
When all the cheese has been incorporated, carefully add the peas. Gently stir with a wooden spoon so you don't crush the peas. Continue gently stirring until the peas have heated through.
Serve right away or in a chafing dish so the cheese remains warm.
