Blue Ribbon Recipe

Black-eye pea dip like this has been around for a while, but we love the twist on this recipe. Using balsamic vinegar makes it feel a little fancy. Chopped green, red, and yellow bell pepper along with cilantro gives the dip a very fresh flavor. A delicious dip for a cookout, game night, or even at a tailgate. The longer it sits, the better it gets.
