Cowboy Caviar

5 Jul

My mom gave me this recipe a few years back when I was looking for fun things to take to a picnic. For some reason, I decided not to make it until 3 years later. Why on earth did I wait so long?


Corny Beany Tomatoey Goodness!

Talk about a GREAT dip!!! This chunky dip has a lil something for everyone – corn, beans, tomatoes, avocado……and a little bit of a bite from the hot sauce! But the great thing about that is you get to control how spicy to make it according to your audience.

All you have to do is take a tortilla chip and DIG IN! You will be requested to bring this to parties. This dip is crazy-good.

DIG IN!!!!!

Cowboy Caviar


  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 3 avocados, cubed

  • 1 lime, juiced

    Laura- just made this dip for a party tonight and one tomorrow (made a double batch). Lots of chopping, but couldn’t stop eating it as I went along! Delish! Thanks so much!
