Texas Caviar

This is a tasty and easy little dip that originally was made with black eyed peas. I like it with the white acre peas a lot.  The only change I would make next time is I think I will use cilantro instead of parsley or maybe a mixture of the two.  It could just be that we love cilantro, but we think that would be a much better herb for this.  I made the chips too.  I had some leftover corn tortillas and made them similarly to the Parmesan Tortilla Crisps, but I just used plain oil and then seasoned with salt, and garlic.  Fast and filling, and certainly healthier than those mayo or cheese based dips.
