Recipe: Cowboy Caviar

Looking for an alternative to bean dip or boring salsa? Tried and true for summer parties, my mom makes this amazing dip all the time. It's on a short list of recipes I know I can make without messing it up if I have to bring something to a potluck or party. The hardest part is the grocery shopping.  But most of you are probably better acquainted with grocery aisles than I...

Cowboy Caviar 


Solid Stuff:
1 can black beans or black-eyed peas
1 can shoepeg corn
1 avocado (cut into small blocks)
2/3 C chopped cilantro
2/3 C chopped green onions
2 chopped roma tomatoes


Instructions: mix them all together in a large bowl.

Dressing:
1/4 C olive oil
1/4 C red wine vinegar
1 minced garlic clove
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Instructions: blend in blender then pour on top of the stuff above. Stir it all together. Done!

Serve cold with tortilla chips. 

If you double the recipe you'll have enough for a-LOT of people, like, it's a party. When I double it, I use one can of black beans and one can of black-eyed peas to mix it up.  I also tend to throw in extra avocado if I have some.  And it's actually not that bad for you!

Enjoy!
