Texas Caviar Recipe

Last weekend I had a Ladies Wine Night here at the house. One of my neighbors brought over an appetizer and I just had to get the recipe.

I’ve seen variations online for this recipe. Some call it Cowboy Caviar, others Texas Caviar and even Aztec Salsa. Whatever you call it, I call it “Freakin Good”!!

2 avocados peeled, pits removed and chopped

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

1  11 oz can Mexican style corn

3 tomatoes seeded and chopped (she said she uses only roma tomatoes)

3 green onions, sliced

1 small red onion, chopped

1/4 cup olive oil

1 (0.7 oz) packet of dry Italian-style salad dressing mix

1. Lightly combine the avocados with the red wine vinegar in a salad bowl. Stir in the beans, corn, tomatoes, green and red onion.

2. Whisk together the olive oil and salad dressing mix in a bowl and pour it over the avocado mixture and toss lightly.

Serve with tortilla chips of your choice

*Tip: if you put the avocado seed in the middle of the bowl, it will prevent the avocado in this dish to stay green and not brown!
