Texas Caviar

My friend Lindsay called me this morning wanting my recipe for Texas Caviar. I told her to quit being lazy and just get it off my blog to which she replied that she had tried and couldn't find it. To my dismay, I had never posted it! This is hands down the most requested thing that I bring to get-togethers and potlucks. It is so amazingly good and healthy - minus the chips that you are dipping with.

  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 can red beans
  • 1 can black eyed peas
  • 1 can white corn
  • 1 can yellow corn
  • 2 can Ro-Tel tomatoes
  • 1 can sliced or chopped olives
  • 1 small bottle Zesty Italian dressing (or half the bottle of the regular-sized one)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Serve with either Frito Scoops or tortilla chips
Drain all the beans, corn, and olives. Mix together and let sit in the fridge for 24 hours. You can serve in less time, but the taste gets better over time. Go make this now!!
