A couple of days before Thanksgiving, I was visiting with the receptionist at our dentist’s office while my daughter was getting some work done on her teeth. We were talking about our plans for Thanksgiving.
She said she was going home to Texas to spend the holiday with her family. As we were visiting, she told me that she was bringing Cowboy Caviar to share at her family’s Thanksgiving dinner.
I had never heard of Cowboy Caviar so I asked her what it was and how you make it. She described it to me and then said that there were lots of recipes online. She suggested looking them up and then picking the parts that I liked and making my own. So, finally in the middle of January, that is what I did.
I love avocados and cilantro so those 2 ingredients HAD to be included. I also used black beans, blackeye peas, tomatoes, onion and Italian dress. I forgot to add the corn, garlic powder and lime juice to this picture.
- Do the draining, chopping and dicing.
- Then, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.
- Cover the bowl and place in the fridge until ready to serve.
- Allow the flavors to blend for about 1 hour before serving with tortilla chips.
