    Hi, I posted this recipe...just wanted to add, I use WishBone Italian dressing and also black beans which can substitute for the black-eyed peas (I usually do one of each if I can, but sometimes the black-eyed peas are hard to find). This is ALWAYS a huge hit, people ask me over and over to make it, you can adjust the spice level and even kids love it!  -  20 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was so delicious and easy to make! We had to omit the avacado (they were unripe) and added 1/2 c. of fresh chopped cilantro - served them with Fritos Scoops and everyone thought it was fantastic!  -  16 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
