I’m a chips and dip lover. One of my favorites is Texas Caviar Dip. I was introduced to Texas Caviar at my last job. One of my coworkers would make it for the office every few weeks and the whole office would devour it. My desk was right next to where the dip usually was, so I would eat that stuff all day long! My coworker even made it for my office baby shower, even though it was a breakfast event because I loved it so much. When I left that job she gave me the recipe, so now I bring Texas Caviar Dip to cookouts and parties. Or I just make it for myself at home. I did tweak her recipe a bit, just to add some other flavors that Jesse and I love to the mix. Texas Caviar

This Texas Caviar Dip is super simple to make, and it doesn’t require any cooking! It’s made with canned black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, and a few fresh veggies mixed in Italian salad dressing! Start by thoroughly rinsing the black beans, black-eyed peas, and corn. Then add them to a large serving bowl. Then dice up the veggies. I like to use half of a red bell pepper, half of a green bell pepper, one jalapeƱo, 2 Roma tomatoes, 1/2 a red onion, and 1 avocado. The avocado was one of my additions because it adds a nice creamy texture to the dip.

Once all the vegetables are diced into scoopable pieces, add them to the beans and corn. Then pour 1 1/2 cups of Italian salad dressing over top and mix so everything is well coated. Finish it off with cilantro, either as a garnish or mixed into the dip. I prefer to finely chop the cilantro and mix it into the dip. Serve the Texas Caviar Dip with Tostino’s Scoops (or any kind of tortilla chip). Tostino’s Scoops are my favorite because you can get a hearty scoop with a variety of beans and veggies in just a single scoop.

Every time I take this Texas Caviar to a cookout it gets demolished and everyone always asks about it. It’s that good!
