Seriously, who doesn't love a good cowboy caviar? There's probably lots of recipes out there, but I thought I'd share mine anyways. I remember the first time I had it...I use to teach, have I ever mentioned that? Well, that was years ago now, before I had kids. Anyways, my teacher friend made it for my baby shower they were throwing me, that's the first time I was introduced to it...I'll never forget because I practically at all of it myself. (Not really, but I ate a lot!) It was so good, she even shared her recipe with me, thanks Linda! I also really like the name, it's just funny to me. Some of you might now this as other names, but this is my favorite. This recipe makes a lot, and is great for gatherings or just to keep in your refrigerator ready to munch on.
Drain the following and pour into a large bowl:
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can black eyed peas
- 1 can corn
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 bunch chopped green onions (use as much or as little as you like)
- 1-2 diced avocados
- Lime juice (over the avocados to keep them fresh)
- 1 package Italian seasoning powder packet
- 1 bunch chopped cilantro (use as much or as little as you like)
