My stepmother rolled out a bowl of Cowboy Caviar years ago and I loved it! It became one of my and my daughter’s favorites. We’ve adapted it to our taste. I’ve seen many versions of this recipe and so feel free to add or take out ingredients to suit your particular taste. I just recently saw a version in a new cookbook I bought and it was called “Texas Caviar” of course Texas would claim it, haha!
It’s really easy, quick and healthy! Double it to feed a crowd! It is a real hit at parties! It’s awesome!
Ingredients and Directions:
Open and drain: 1 can each of black beans, black-eyed peas, and corn
Chop equal amounts: tomato, green onion, cilantro
Mix everything together and add bottled Italian dressing to coat but not drowning ingredients. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes, longer if possible. If it seems dry, add more Italian dressing. Serve with corn chips.
We’ve used these ingredients to change it up: chopped jalapeno, green and red bell pepper, parsley, avocado.
