Texas caviar is a classic southern bean dip, full of fiber and delicious flavors! Black-eyed peas, black beans, corn, tomatoes, and a light dressing make this easy dip recipe a favorite snack!
This version of Texas Caviar is my mother-in-law’s and frankly, it’s the best! I’ve tried various versions of the recipe and this one takes the cake. It is easy to make, as long as you like to chop veggies because it tastes the best when you chop them finely. Texas caviar has so many fresh, raw ingredients!
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can white shoepeg corn, drained
1 can Ro-tel tomatoes, original or hot
8 oz Good Seasons Italian dressing mix prepared in a jar or cruet (according to packet directions, using half cider vinegar and half white wine vinegar)
1 fresh jalapeño, diced
¼ cup red onion, finely chopped (or to taste)
1 green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 ½ cups celery, finely diced
1 cup salad cucumber, diced in small pieces
1 clove fresh garlic, finely minced
Fresh oregano, cilantro, basil and parsley to taste-finely chopped
Sea salt and pepper, to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl. If you want more juice, just add another can of Ro-tel. Enjoy with your favorite tortilla chips.
What To Serve With Texas Caviar Dip
Serve Texas caviar with your favorite tortilla chips (we love organic blue corn chips). I highly recommend doubling this recipe for big parties because it disappears fast!
