Start your party with this delicious Cheesy Black Eyed Pea Dip using al fresco chicken bacon.
Are you ready for the “big game” this Sunday? Once again I had to google to see what teams had actually made it to this years game. In case you are still unaware the Patriots are playing the Falcons this coming Sunday. Now that we have the teams covered lets get to the best part.. the food.
I’ll be serving this Cheesy Black Eyed Pea Dip with Bacon at our gathering. All guests EXPECT to see a table filled with all kinds of delicious appetizers. Whether it’s dips, chicken wings, chips, veggie trays or something else, you better have some food and drinks ready to go. You can bet that I’ll be getting my fill on food and keeping myself entertained with this years commercials. It will be a nice break from all the crazy things happening in life at the moment.
I’ve teamed up with al fresco all natural to bring you this Cheesy Black Eyed Pea Dip with Bacon. In fact, I used their chicken bacon to complete this dish. All dips are better with cheese and bacon. Am I right? Yes, I am.
