In honor of this game, I'm going to share a recipe that I always serve during this match up. I've borrowed it from Ms. Paula Deen of The Lady & Son's fame from Savannah. It's called South Georgia Caviar and its the perfect tailgating munchie! Here's the recipe:
SOUTH GEORGIA CAVIAR
2 (15-ounce) cans black-eyed peas, drained
1 (15-ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles (recommended: Ro-Tel)
2 cups chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped fresh jalapeno peppers
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (8-ounce) bottle Italian dressing
1 (4-ounce) jar chopped pimentos, drained
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir gently to combine. Refrigerate mixture overnight. Serve with corn chips. Yield: 15 servings
I know, it sounds different with the black-eyed peas, but it is sooo yummy! It's salsa-like and it is so easy to make! You can serve it right after you make it, but its even better the next day. I'd rather eat this than regular salsa. It goes down good with a nice cold beer!
Is there a game you're excited about this weekend? Tell me about it!
