Texas Caviar Recipe With Avocado & Bacon Is Vibrant & Healthy

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.)

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.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes to cook bacon
