Quick Texas Caviar Recipe Is Healthy, Vibrant & Delicious

Texas cuisine can surprise you. We have heavy barbecued brisketssmoked pork butts, ribs and meat-laden Texas chili and beans, but we also enjoy the lighter fare like this easy Texas caviar recipe

With beans, peas, corn and other fresh vegetables, it is perfect on a tortilla chip. This version is spiked with a little crispy bacon and avocado, too, which ups the flavor. (For a vegetarian option, just leave the bacon out.)

To make this refreshing bean relish recipe you will need a can of black-eyed peas, a can of black beans, a can of whole kernel corn, red bell pepper, red onion, grape tomatoes, bacon, cilantro, an avocado, limes for juicing, red wine vinegar, olive oil, ground cumin and granulated sugar (optional). The ingredients are stirred together and seasoned with salt and pepper.

Recipe Notes

  • If you're not a fan of black-eyed peas – my husband things they're "dry" – use two cans of black beans instead.
  • Because it has avocado, serve this appetizer recipe immediately. If you won't be eating it right away, stir in the avocado right before serving.

Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a small whole. Season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine.
  2. Put all the caviar ingredients into a large bowl. Pour the dressing over and toss. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
