Always popular at a party, Texas Caviar (with its black-eyed peas) will make for good fortune for the coming year if eaten on New Year's Day. From Patricia Mitchell's article on blackeyed pea recipes.
Combine olive oil, chiles, cayenne, onion, celery, vinegar, salt and pepper, and mix well. Drain the chiles. Pour over peas and stir gently. Refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
At serving time, add chopped tomatoes and cilantro, and stir gently to mix. Serve with tortilla chips. Makes one overflowing bowl of caviar.
