I first had this dish ay my friend Kathy's house. It's SO good. Originally it's called "Frito Bean Dip" because I think you are supposed to eat it with Frito chips. Well, it's great that way, no doubt. But, it's so good that I like to just eat it all by itself! So, whether you choose to chip it up or eat it solo, this is a delicious and MUCH healthier alternative to traditional summer side dishes. With no mayo, it can take the heat of summer parties, too.
Frito Bean Dip
1 can black eyed peas
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can Green Giant Mexi-Corn mix
1 small can of chopped pimentos
1 small can of green chilis (diced)
1 T water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp pepper
Drain and rise all of the beans and corn. Mix together the beans, corn, pimentos and chilies.
Boil the water, vinegar, oil, sugar, and pepper until the sugar is melted.
Add the boiled mixture to the bean mixture and let it marinate for a few hours. When you are ready to serve it, drain the liquid from the beans with a slotted spoon.
Serve with fritos, tortilla chips, or whatever else strikes your fancy.
