Texas Caviar

Updated: Oct 16, 2021

Texas Caviar or Cowboy Caviar - I have no idea the difference or if there even is one. I decided on Texas and now we are rolling with it....


Pinterest has a million Texas Caviar recipes. That's great right? But how do you know which one is the best? So my idea...take a bunch of recipes and combine the ingredients together. This is what I came up with and it's delicious....


Oh, and a few tips - this feeds a crowd! If your crowd is small, don't worry it saves really well. Use it through out the week on salads, eggs, grilled chicken or a quick snack!

And... it gets better the longer it sits, so make ahead it the night before you wanna dive in!



Strain & diced all of the following ingredients and toss them into a large bowl


1 Can of Corn, strained (I always prefer the sweet)

1 Can of Black Eyed Peas, strained (can't find? that's snag a different bean, or double up on black)

1 Can of Black Beans, strained

1 Medium onion, Diced

4 Roma Tomatoes, Diced

1 Yellow Bell Pepper, Diced

1 Orange Bell Pepper, Diced

1 Jalapeño, Seeded & Diced (can add more depending on your desired heat level)


Sauce time!

Toss the following in a mason jar, throw the lid on and shake away. Or, whisk in a bowl!


3/4 Cup good Olive Oil

1/3 Cup White Vinegar

1/4 Cup Sugar, Start with 1/4 and if you think it needs more toss more in!

A Handful of Cilantro Chopped


Now, this is where I get technical...

A Jumbo dash or two of:

Garlic Powder

Chili Pepper

Dehydrated Garlic (or a couple real cloves)

Finally, Large Sprinkle of Salt and Pepper


Once the sauce is mixed, pour over caviar! Gently mix it and you're done!
