Cowboy Caviar

With all the football games going on right now, I thought it would be fun to share one of our favorite appetizers.  Cowboy Caviar is a great dip--something you can really wow your friends with at Super Bowl or as a starter before a dinner party.

 
  • 1 can drained black eyed peas
  • 1 can drained shoepeg corn
  • 3/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • cilantro, chopped
Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup light olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
Once you've chopped all the ingredients, add to a bowl and mix in the dressing.  Serve with tortilla chips (scoops are best!).


The end result is a delicious, crunchy, and highly addictive little treat...you may not have room for dinner once you've started in.

Hope you enjoy!  Bon Appetit!
