1 stick organic butter
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) Wild Oats Raw Milk Jack Cheese, grated
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) Wild Oats Raw Milk Jalapeno Jack Cheese, grated
2 (15 oz.) cans black-eyed peas
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small to medium sweet onion, diced finely
2 teaspoons diced jalapeno peppers

Melt butter and both cheeses in a double boiler over very low heat. Drain peas and save liquid. Gently mash peas with a fork. Stir in the garlic, onion, jalapeno, and peas into the melted cheese. This with reserved liquid from peas if too thick. Serve warm with corn tortilla chips, pita chips, or fresh veggies.
