Black Eyed Pea Salsa


I wanted something a little different to start off lucky 2014, so why not black eyed peas in a salsa?  I saw some recipes on the internet, but none realy tripped my trigger, if you know what I mean.  Perhaps I should not have spent my entire military career in Texas.  I am anti-gun for the most part (see previous metaphor).  Then I thought why not emulate my friend Dana, and include more completely original recipes instead of tweaking everyone else?  That says TWEAKING not TWERKING.
