Black Eye Pea Salsa

2-3 large tomatoes (about 3 cups)
1 bunch green onions (about 1 cup)
1 bunch cilantro (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 can sweet corn peas (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 can black eye peas (about 1 1/2 cups)
2-3 large avocados (about 3 cups)
1 package Good Seasonings Italian Dressing powder
Tortilla chips (to serve)
Dice/chop tomatoes, green onions, and cilantro fairly small.
Drain corn and black eye peas.
In a large bowl combine diced tomatoes, chopped green onions, cilantro, corn, and peas.
In another small bowl mix the Good Seasonings Italian dressing according to directions on package.

Pour dressing over tomatoe/onions/cilantro/corn/pea mixture.
Just before serving slice and cube avocados and add to mixture.
Serve with tortilla chips.
(For a lower fat version, save the juice from the black eye peas and use it in making the Italian dressing instead of using oil)
