Easy Texas Caviar Recipe: A Healthy & Delicious Bean Salsa Recipe (AKA Cowboy Caviar)

Texas Caviar is a delicious bean salsa that's typically accompanied by tortilla chips. Texas caviar was created in Texas around 1940 by Helen Corbitt, who went on to become director of food service at Neiman Marcus in Dallas, Texas. Corbitt first served the dish on New Year's Eve in Houston, then later in Austin, where it was given the name Texas Caviar (though it's also known as Cowboy Caviar).

Whether you serve this delicious salsa recipe as an appetizer for a weekend get-together or just as a weekday snack, this healthy bean dip needs to be in your recipe rotation. So easy – just toss everything into one bowl. Serve with tortilla chips or potato chips – and throw in some chopped avocado to add a creamy punch. 

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Here's how to make it:
