Cowboy Caviar

A hearty and healthy dip that any cowboy (or man) is sure to gobble up. 10 servings

  • Prep Time 10 min
  • Total Time 60 min
  • Servings 0


(14.5 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
(14.5 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
(7 ounce) can white shoepeg corn, drained and rinsed
Roma tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
ripe but firm avocados, diced
green onions, sliced thin (or half of a purple onion, diced)
cup zesty Italian dressing
bunch cilantro, chopped finely
juice of 1-2 limes
ground pepper and salt to taste


  • 1 Drain and rinse the black eyed peas, black beans, and corn. Add to a large bowl.
  • 2 Dice the tomatoes, making sure the seeds and insides are removed. You want to do this to make sure that there isn't too much liquid in the dip. Add the diced tomatoes and cilantro to the bowl.
  • 3 Slice the green onions finely and add to the bowl.
  • 4 Dice the avocado and squeeze a little of the lime juice over the avocados so they don't brown as quickly. Squeeze the rest of the lime juice into the bowl.
  • 5 Add the Italian dressing and stir to coat all the ingredients. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • 6 Chill in the refrigerator until cold and flavors have marinated together. This is best served the same day as prepared. Serve with tortilla chips.
