Zannie’s Black-Eyed Pea Dip

On Wednesday nights I get home a little late, so dinner has to be quick. Lately I have been making what Germans call fesper, which is basically little tapas or appetizers, or really whatever is in your fridge. Usually we have some crusty bread, olives, cheese, maybe one hot thing. Last week I made this dip. It was good! I left out the spicy stuff, and I think that it needed some kind of zip to replace that! I didn’t have tortilla chips for the dip, so we used a crusty bread. You could totally make this vegan by using vegan sour cream and vegan cheese.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain black-eyed peas and partially mash, leaving some whole.
