I’m a week behind. Last week’s theme for Whip It Up was Appetizer’s. I just didn’t get my act together coming off of vacation, but I made Burger Bites for lunch today. I didn’t change the recipe much. The only difference was that I used store-brand breadsticks instead of Pillsbury, so the breadsticks were portioned out a little different. So I only made 32 “buns”.
This was delicious! The original recipe is here, my modifications were made based on reviews and Chad’s request for more heat! This was the first time I bought black eyed peas! Very yummy with baked tostito scoops!

1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas

2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 cup hot pepper sauce

In a medium bowl, combine black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, onion, green bell pepper, jalapeno peppers and tomatoes. Season with Italian-style salad dressing and garlic salt; mix well. Cover, and refrigerate overnight to blend flavors.
