Cowboy Caviar



It was seventy degrees on Friday night and we were headed over to a friends' house to grill out and enjoy the amazing weather. I wanted to bring an appetizer that was representative of the weather and the first thing that came to mind was cowboy caviar. I'm sure most of you have heard of this tried and true delicious dip and it is so simple that it can be done in a matter of minutes.

You Will Need:
  • 1 15 oz can of black beans, drained
  • 1 15 oz can of corn, drained
  • 2 large plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/2 sweet onion, diced
  • Lime juice from 1 lime
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Here We Go:
  • Mix together red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt , pepper, lime juice and garlic power in a small bowl, set aside
  • Mix together black beans, corn, tomatoes, onion, avocado
  • Pour liquid mixture over vegetables and toss
  • Chill before serving
  • Serve with Tostitos Scoops or Frtios Scoops

Hi lrd2188! It is so delicious and fresh tasting since other than the vegetables there isn't much else to it. If you make it this weekend, let me know how it goes! Thanks for visiting the site!
