Lucky New Year's Dip

Some call it superstition, I like to think of it as southern tradition- no matter how you look at "luck" it's time to mix up a bowl of black eyed peas.

This year my recipe is a combination of two Pinterest recipes- h/t to Creme De La Crumb and Spicy Southern Kitchen.  I am calling mine Lucky New Year's Dip

Lucky New Year's Dip

2 cans black eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can dark red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can yellow corn, drained
8 sweet bell peppers, seeded and chopped (I used the red and orange for color)
One bunch of green onions, chopped
1 can of green chilies
1/2 Cup of fresh cilantro, cut with kitchen shears
1/2 Cup of red wine vinegar
2 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil

Lime optional for serving

In a large bowl mix together: Beans, corn, peppers, onions, and chilies.  Add fresh cilantro.

Prepare dressing of vinegar, sugar,black pepper, and vegetable oil in a small bowl. Pour dressing into large bowl and toss to coat mixture evenly.  Cover and place in refrigerator for several hours for best flavor.Squeeze lime wedges for added kick before serving

I plan to serve our Lucky New Year's Dip tomorrow with chips to boost our chances for the Sooner's football game.
Share some luck with neighbors too!

Wishing you a safe, lucky, and very Happy New Year! LLM
