  1. Think will try but without the green peppers or jalapeno peppers. Will sub red peppers and celery I think. Don’t like avocados, fresh tomatoes, or cilantro either! So will skip that too. May try canned tomatoes. May try some other seasonings….hmmmm, maybe some oregano, or something. Thanks for an idea for black eyed peas though! Bought some, didn’t know what to try.

      Hi Nancy. Sure! Leave out the veggies you don’t like. Make it yours. I too love black eyed peas! This dip is so fresh and guilt free dipping! Love that! -Amy
