Texas Caviar Dip

Now this is not any sort of real caviar. Rather its more of an upside down salsa, with beans being the larger ingredients, rather than tomatoes. It’s quite tasty, and addictive with chips.

1 small onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped (green preferable)
1 bunch of chopped chives
1 tablespoon garlic salt
2 cans of diced tomatoes, jalapeƱo flavored
1 (8 ounce) bottle of Italian Dressing (I find store brands work best for this)
2 (15 ounce) cans of hominy (garbanzo beans are a good substitute if you can’t find hominy)
2 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained
1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro
Shredded parsley if desired.

Mix all ingredients together in large bowl, than serve as a dip. It goes best with corn chips or some sort of salty cracker. It also tastes better after 24 hours, after it has time to marinade itself.

My son just gave me a recipe that is similar to this and beware, it is addictive too. Fewer ingredients than yours, just several of them are speciality things.

Southwest Succotash (or Texas Caviar)

1 can black beans
1 can black eyed peas
1 can kernel corn
1 tub store bought pico de gallo (or homemade)(Rotel tomatoes with onions/garlic/cilantro will work too)
1/2 cup seedless raspberry chipotle sauce

Drain and rinse beans and corn. Mix in medium bowl with pico and sauce, stir. Serve cold with favorite chips or crackers.

(A warm version replaces the black eyed peas with canned pinto beans. All heated together and served as side dish.)

I enjoy your recipes. Want to try your slow cooker chicken. paula
