Black-Eyed Pea-And-Tomato Salsa

Recipe By : Cooking Light, Nov/Dec 1994

Vegetable cooking spray *
1 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup lean Canadian-style bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 can (15 oz) black-eyed peas, drained
1 can (14 1/2 oz) whole tomatoes, undrained and chopped
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, minced
1 Tbl fresh jalapeno pepper,finely chopped

*I don't use cooking spray...I prefer to lightly coat pan with olive oil, as spray contains additives that eventually coat and ruin your cookware-CB.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium heat until hot. Add onion, bacon and garlic; saute 5 minutes. Stir in cumin, pepper, peas, and tomatoes. Remove from heat; stir in remaining ingredients. Spoon into a bowl; cover and chill 1 to 8 hours.

Yield: 3-1/2 cups (serving size: 1/4 cup).

Serve at room temperature with Italian bread or no-oil tortilla chips
