There are few things in life that give me as much pleasure as dipping a tortilla chip in this cowboy caviar dip.

After all, it is full of all my favorite ingredients! Black beans, black eyed peas, peppers and sweet corn with fresh coriander and creamy avocado. This is what the sky tastes like.

I could probably eat all the beans and vegetables alone, but the sauce for this cowboy caviar is quite special. It has a sweet and tart touch thanks to red wine vinegar, fresh lime juice and a touch of sugar. This little sweetness combined with all these crispy vegetables and coriander sends this recipe over.

What is Cowboy Caviar?

Cowboy caviar is also sometimes called texan caviar or Texas black bean salsa. Whatever you decide to call it, this delicious dip is not your average salsa recipe.

Here is what you will need to make my cowboy caviar recipe and you can find the full instructions as well as the ingredients for the dressing in the recipe sheet below.

3 roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 ripe avocados, diced
1 can 15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can 15 oz black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed
1 red pepper, diced
1 small red onion, diced
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, diced
1/3 cup fresh coriander, finely chopped

Because you get the protein and nutrition from the beans and all these vegetables, it's a super healthy snack. You can even cut back on sugar if you want to increase the health benefits.

Oh, and don't be fooled by imitators! Avocado Cowboy Caviar is essential. I have seen recipes that omit avocado, but believe me, these creamy pieces of avocado really do the dish! I am also very serious about the fact that sweet corn is included in my dip. These sweet kernels popping in your mouth make every bite so tasty.

Oh, and if you're a big avocado fan, don't miss my avocado basil pasta!

Of course, if you're really not a lawyer fan, you can ignore it. It’s really nice thing about this recipe. You can easily replace or omit ingredients based on your preferences and what you have on hand.

For example, I have already used different types of beans in the recipe with great success. Once when I didn't have black-eyed peas on hand, I used chickpeas in my cowboy caviar recipe. My guests have always loved it!

Ways to enjoy your cowboy caviar

I think we have established that I like having cowboy caviar as a dip, but I have another fantastic way to eat it that I wanted to share with you.

I love making burrito bowls for my family, and cowboy caviar is perfect for adding to it. You can turn this delicious dip into a complete meal by adding it to a bowl of rice or quinoa, chopped romaine lettuce, cheese and tortillas.

I also quite simply enjoyed my cowboy caviar in a salad with grated roasted chicken breast to make it a complete meal!

I also like to make this recipe because it keeps wonderfully in the fridge for several days in an airtight container. Just put it in a bowl for a quick snack or meal. It's a great item to have in your weekly meal preparation arsenal!
