The Best Cowboy Caviar!

If you’re looking for a healthy and easy dip that comes together in less than 5 minutes, then this cowboy caviar is it! It’s loaded with beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, bell peppers, onions, and much more! It’s the perfect summer potluck appetizer!

This Cowboy Caviar is delicious on it’s own, or one of our favorite ways is serving it with tortilla chips! And also if you’re eating it just by itself, adding some sort of meat, like ground beef or chicken, is a great option too!

Ingredients:

Beans: We like using a mix of black beans, and black-eyed peas for the best combination!

Corn: Corn is a must in this, because it adds a nice pop of color and flavor!

Bell Peppers: You can use any color you’d like. We used red and orange.

Onion: Red onion is the best, but if a white onion is all you have on hand, that’ll work fine!

Avocado: And of course, we just had to add avocado!

Jalapeño: You can skip this if you’d like, but it adds flavor, without it being too spicy!

Tomatoes: Roma works the best. But be sure to dice them small!

Lime Juice: This recipe uses the juice from one lime.

Cilantro: We love adding cilantro to this cowboy caviar!
