Texas Caviar

I'm not sure how this dish came about, but it's a good one.  A little spicy, a little tang, and a whole bunch of flavor.  It's great for holidays and get-togethers.  Bring some to your next gathering, and it's sure to be a hit.

Two 15-ounce cans black-eyed peas, drained & rinsed
2 Roma tomatoes, chopped
1/4 C red onion, chopped
2 avacadoes, diced
1/4 C (or to taste) chopped jalapeno slices (the kind from a jar)
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 C frozen corn kernels
1-2 T lime juice, to taste
1 T cumin
Salt & pepper, to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and chill.  Serve with tortilla chips.
