party appetizers, black eyed peas dip

Am I the only one that sees the a post called Black Eyed Peas Dip and immediately starts humming Black Eyed Peas songs? I’ve had Where Is The Love stuck in my head for at least an hour… but I digress. Food Should Taste Good is the brand of all those delicious chips in cool flavors you’re always checking out at the market. So when they reached out and asked us to collaborate on some recipes I was like, A recipe to go with chips?! Hello! We are the dip capital of the internet! And they were like, Yeah, we know Rachel, that’s why we’re here. 

So what’s up first? Black Eyed Peas Dip!! Because next week is New Year’s and Black Eyed Peas are a traditional dish for good luck… so why not add in some tasty ingredients and melted cheese and turn this New Year into something delicious!
