It’s about the time of the year when fellow football fans start asking if I have any good black-eyed peas recipe for New Year’s Day. (For those of you who do not know the history of black-eyed peas, in many cultures around the world, from the Middle East to the American South, eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day is thought to bring prosperity in the New Year.) Since Smoky Cowboy Caviar is only recipe I have ever posted involving the storied pea, I thought it was high-time to add another one to the catalog, especially with so many crucial Week 17 games heading our way on New Year’s Day. If I was a Raiders/Chargers/Eagles/Giants/Cowboys/Jets/Bengals fan, I’d plan on eating a tray or two of this dip on January 1, 2012.
