Cowboy Caviar

I know this is a dip, but dang it all if I couldn’t eat this Mexican appetizer for a straight up MEAL.

Sure, you can load Cowboy Caviar on chips all day long (topped w/ sour cream of course) but once it’s made, try throwing it on a taco or burrito.

Seriously it’s THE best way to flavor UP your meals.

We call it a side dish or an appetizer, but its also a main meal if you let it!

  • 1 can, 15 oz, black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can, 15 oz, pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn (frozen or canned is fine)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomato
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup diced orange peppers
  • 1/3 cup diced red peppers
  • 1/3 cup diced yellow pepper
  • 1/3 cup diced red onions
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • juice of 1 lime
  • tortilla chips for serving

This recipe makes 6 cups of dip, so you can do the math on how much you need.

Texas Caviar Tips:

  • Texas caviar is a hearty dip is easy to make and with lots of good flavor as well. Full of veggies, I also think it’s pretty healthy dip considering!
  • I’d recommend refrigerating your dip first for spicy flavors to mingle.

While this cowboy caviar recipe above has no avocado, you can easily add chunks of it right before serving.

Because avocado can get brown and freak everyone out, its best left to the side till right before you put it out.
