Texax Caviar

post #1 of 9

Here's the original recipe

1/2 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 bunch green onions, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 pint cherry tomatoes, quartered
1 (8 ounce) bottle zesty Italian dressing
1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
1 (15 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1 bunch chopped fresh cilantro

1. In a large bowl, mix together onion, green bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno peppers, garlic, cherry tomatoes, zesty Italian dressing, black beans, black-eyed peas and coriander. Cover and chill in the refrigerator approximately 2 hours. Toss with desired amount of fresh cilantro to serve.

Now here's how I do it.
I cook up one bag of black eyed peas and 1 bag of black beans.
I pretty much double the rest of the ingredients.
Instead of cherry tomatoes I just dice up regular tomatoes.

Sounds interesting, sporty. How do you use it? As a spread? A dip maybe?

Sorry about that!! Just like kew_el_steve said - the scoop chips are perfect for this.

This stuff is addictive!!
