Salt and freshly ground pepper
Corn chips, for serving
In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, mix together the peas, jalapenos, pickling juice, Cheddar, butter, onion and garlic powder until blended. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a medium slow cooker and cook on high until warm. Turn to low heat to keep warm for serving. Serve with corn chips.
Cook's Note: You can also spread the dip into an 8-by-10-inch baking dish and warm it in a 375-degree F oven for 7 to 8 minutes before serving.
