Ok--I admit to changing things up, but just a tad. I subbed out the black-eyed peas for black beans. :) Actually, you could use the regular diced tomatoes and add some fresh cilantro and lime, if you were so inclined, but, why not just keep it easy--this is delicious! Seriously, just mix it all up in a bowl and let it marinate for a few hours. I promise, this will be the hit of your party.
If, by some rare chance, there are leftovers, simply tuck some into a warm tortilla for a quick lunch....
......or, if you are like me and you just love breakfast for dinner, top that tortilla with a couple of eggs....so, so good!
