My mom shared this yummy recipe with me at a family reunion. It is another great summer recipe, although I also served it at a New Year's Eve party and it was a total hit. It kind of reminds me of a bean salad with the marinade, but way better! My kids often ask me to make this because they like it so much. Be aware that this makes a large batch which is perfect for a group, it's delicious!
1 can each-drain and rinse
Black eyed peas
White kidney beans
1 c green pepper
1 c celery
2 cans diced green chilies
Mix all together in a container with a tight lid.
I use a large flat one so it covers better to marinate.
Depending on the amount of beans used, you will need to make
½ more or double the marinate.
In a saucepan bring to a boil:
1 cup oil
1 cup sugar
1 tsp water
¾ c white vinegar
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
Let marinade cool, and then stir in with bean mixture.
Let marinate for 24 hours before serving for best flavor.
Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!
