The Creative Princess: Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar

Spring, Summer, Chips, Dip, Homemade, #HomemadeChallenge
 Have you ever had Cowboy Caviar?

Living in Oklahoma you would think I would have had it before. Nope. I have not. I have heard of it, seen it at get togethers, smelled it. But, I have NEVER tasted it.

Why? I'm not really sure. Probably because it had something or other that made me turn my nose up at it.

Well. That has changed!

It is SO good! The perfect, refreshing, dip for a warm spring day. Cilantro gives it the perfect mix of spice to make the flavors POP!

Cowboy Caviar
1 Can Black Eyed Peas, drained & rinsed
1 Can Black Beans, drained & rinsed
2 Cups Frozen Corn*
1/4 Green Bell Pepper, diced
2 Cloves Garlic, minced
3 Roma Tomatoes, diced
2 Avocados, diced
1/2 Red Onion, diced
1/2 Cup Zesty Italian Dressing
1/2 Bunch Cilantro, finely chopped
2 Limes
Salt & Pepper to taste

Rinse and drain beans.
Juice Limes.
In a large bowl combine all ingredients, I added the avocado last so I would not mush it to much.
Serve immediately or cover and store in fridge until ready to use.

This is a great dip served with homemade tortilla chips, or to top tacos with.

*You can use a can of corn or fresh corn, it really does not matter.

Now, let's talk about our #HomemadeChallenge! How are you doing? I would love to know what you made last week!

I started working on a scarf for Mads, yes even though it is 80+ degrees today! HA! I hope to be finished with it in a few days. That is really the only hand/homemade thing I was able to get to this week. Spring break started TODAY so hopefully I will be able to get in the kitchen and do more cooking/baking this week.
