This is one of our family’s all time most beloved recipes. Cowboy caviar is a sort of a dip made from black beans, hominy and black eyed peas, dressed up with lots of veggies and a zesty Italian dressing. It’s absolutely packed with protein and fiber, and all the beautiful vitamins from tomatoes, onions and peppers.
The easiest way to serve this is with tortilla chips, and I’ve got kiddos that will polish off a batch after school – which I love. But I also use this in wraps with chicken or beef, and it’s awesome on tacos as well. For that matter, it’s pretty good as a salad all on its own. I’ve taken this to a ton of parties, and without fail, it’s the first thing to disappear. It really is that good.
Healthy, unbelievably delicious and super fast.
