    Here's the original recipe

    1/2 onion, chopped
    1 green bell pepper, chopped
    1 bunch green onions, chopped
    2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
    1 (8 ounce) bottle zesty Italian dressing
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
    1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained
    1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
    1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro

    1. In a large bowl, mix together onion, green bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cherry tomatoes, zesty Italian dressing, black beans, black-eyed peas and coriander. Cover and chill in the refrigerator approximately 2 hours. Toss with desired amount of fresh cilantro to serve.

    Now here's how I do it.
    I cook up one bag of black eyed peas and 1 bag of black beans.
    I pretty much double the rest of the ingredients.
    Instead of cherry tomatoes I just dice up regular tomatoes.

    Sounds interesting, sporty. How do you use it? As a spread? A dip maybe?

    15oz can Black Eyed Peas, drained and rinsed
    7oz can White Corn, drained and rinsed
    1 10oz can Rotel Original Tomatoes and Chilies, drained – NOT RINSED
    1 Green Pepper, diced small
    1 Yellow or Vidalia Onion, diced small
    1 bunch Cilantro, diced small
    ½ 8oz bottle (use 4oz) Kraft Zesty Italian Dressing
    1 tbsp. Lemon or Lime juice
    1/2 tsp. Black Pepper

    Combine ingredients well in bowl, chill, serve with tortilla chips.

    Its really good if it chills at least 4 hours.

    Sorry about that!! Just like kew_el_steve said - the scoop chips are perfect for this.

    This stuff is addictive!!
