Texas Caviar

A couple of months ago my SIL Sarah introduced me to this great "dip" called Texas Caviar- it is like a Pimped out Black Bean Salsa. When I decided to make it I got her recipe and then combined it with another one from a blog I saw, and well it's the Bomb Diggity!

Every time I bring it somewhere I have at least 2 people tell me it is the best thing EVER, and that they want the recipe.
It also has Many uses.

The first one obviously being a "chip dip"
I have put it in tacos and even made some Killer Enchiladas with the leftovers.

To sum it up this dish ROCKS!!!!!!!

Sorry about the pic, I forgot to take one before it got gobbled up so this is the scrapings of the bowl!
Texas Caviar

1 can black beans ( rinsed and drained)
1 can white corn (drained)
1 can black eyed peas ( drained)
6- 8 roma tomatoes chopped small
6 avocados dices
chopped cilantro
finely chopped green onions
1 small can of green chilies

Put it all together ( add the avocados right before you are ready to take it) and pour on some Italian dressing to your liking . For me less is more. I also use Good Seasons Italian packets and make my own and then pour most of it in. Then refrigerate.

So next time you are asked to bring something to the Partay- I would bring this and you will be a Hit!


  1. I LOOVEE this. And yes, anytime I've taken it somewhere it isn't usually the first thing to get eaten (if the group has never seen it before) but once one person has it, the whole thing seems to be gone 2 seconds later. It def. tastes a million times better than it looks. It starts to look a little questionable after its been out for a minute. I would add to the directions though, not to put the avocado in until right before you serve it, and to put it in the fridge before serving as well.

  2. Crystal I owe it all to you! I am so excited, I went to a chili cook off tonight & made your chicken chili & came home with 2nd prize overall...I got a $50 gift card to Carrabbas....thanks so much for you wonderful recipe!!!

  3. That is AWESOME Katie, I told you it rocked. I can't believe it didn't come in first! I have never met anyone who didn't love it. Have fun at Carrabbas!

  4. I just got a Pavlovian response looking at the picture. Thanks, Bart
