If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa. There's as many names for this as there are variations. This makes 8 cups and serves a huge hungry crowd - think Super Bowl Sunday. It also keeps well. Leftovers can be tossed into a green salad, rolled up in a wrap, or mixed with pasta. But folks just keep coming back to the buffet to get more so you might not have to worry about leftovers.
