  1. One of my go to snack recipes. Thank you!!

  2. So tasty! I’ve made this several times. It’s one of my favorite recipes. It’s great in a wrap too with lettuce or fresh spinach. I like Mission Carb Balance tortillas; only 2 blue points!

  3. We had this last night and it was delicious!  Everyone just loved it! 

  4. So easy to make, yummy and filling. Will definitely make again!

  5. So easy and pretty, a great thing to have on New years or anytime.

  6. I’m so excited to try this! My family has a recipe we call Texas Caviar that is similar to this but so fattening for you with the dressing we do with it. I’ve been thinking what else I could try and here you are!! 

  7. Can this be made a day in advance?

  8. This is great!!! Me and hubbie tried this dish and the flavors are awesome!!!

  9. Wow! I made this today and it is so yummy, like eat the whole bowl yummy. Thanks!

  10. I’m confused about the nutrition information. It says it yields 12 servings at 107 calories per serving? Does that mean the whole dish is 1284 calories? That sounds awfully high for what looks like all healthy ingredients.

    I’m sorry for the dumb question but I’m trying to keep track of my calories with the planner.

  12. Just made it!  Great recipe for us girls who don’t love to cook….yet.  

    Flovors were so great.  A dip with no mayo, no sour cream, no cheese and super delicious.  Definitely a repeat~

  13. I made this today for lunch. I marinated the red onions and garlic in the lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper for 20 minutes in the refrigerator before adding it to the rest of the ingredients. I added a can of garbanzos and used canned corn. I used the avocado as a garnish instead of mixing it in. I served it in individual bowls with bowls of corn chips. This was my best New Year’s Day black eyed peas dish yet. Thank you Gina.

  14. Gina, does this reflect the new flexible smart points? YOur recipes have changed my cooking life! Thanks!
