This is my husband’s favorite appetizer dish. It’s made with plenty of fresh ingredients, fresh cilantro, red peppers, green peppers, red onions, black beans, black eye peas, jalapeño peppers and fresh corn. This fresh and simple dip can be thrown together in the spur of the moment, which makes it a quick side dish for any celebration!
