Classic Texas Caviar

With the college bowl games getting ready to fire up i can't think of a better side dish for the tailgating party or friends in front of the big screen. Texas caviar is a spicy dish originating in where else? You got it. Texas caviar is made using black eyed peas, peppers, onion, veggies and spices. Everyone has their own version and i will share mine with you. I like mine spicy! Grab a bowl of chips or some small toast and sit back and enjoy.
  • 2 cans blacked eyed peas (16oz)
  • 2 cans fiesta corn (mexican)
  • 1 red onion (diced)
  • 8 green onions
  • 3 jalapeno peppers
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 cup cilantro (chopped)
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 4 dashes of tabasco
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 3 diced plum tomatoes
 Add blacked eyed peas, corn, chopped onions, chopped peppers, and tomatoes to bowl. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over peas. Enjoy!

  1. I grew up in Texas and your caviar recipes brought back good memories of all the parties that this dish was served at.
