If you are looking for an alternative to your normal salsa, try this recipe for Spicy Texas Caviar. It’s great with regular tortilla chips or dipping breads and crackers.
This is my favorite dip for tortilla chips. It’s easy, healthy and really yummy. I love the sweet corn, cilantro and avocado well, and the tomatoes and lime! You can ‘heat it up’ using Tabasco or jalapenos. This is a perfect party or backyard BBQ food. Make a lot of it because it will go fast.
Spicy Texas Caviar
3 cans black eye peas, drained and rinsed
2 cans shoepeg corn, drained
3-4 Roma tomatoes, chopped
3 avocados, chunked
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped
1/2 sweet onion, minced
juice of 2 limes
Good Seasonings Italian Dressing packet, prepared
salt to taste
Optional: Tabasco sauce, jalapenos
Combine all ingredients in large bowl, adding avocado last. (If you use Tabasco, this is where you add it!) Pour about 1/2 the dressing into mixture and stir gently. Add as much dressing as desired. I usually use a little more than half. Serve with blue tortilla chips. Enjoy!
