Cowboy Caviar

cowboy caviar

My mom made this delicious dish last time she was here and aside from loving all the ingredients, I think it makes a perfect side to any summertime barbecue! While it can be eaten with chips, I prefer mine straight up.

Cowboy Caviar
All of these ingredients can be adjusted to taste.

2 tbsp red vinegar
1 1/2 tsp olive oil
1/8 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp hot sauce (I am a wimp when it comes to hot sauce, so we eliminated this ingredient.)
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 can garbanzo beans
3 tomatoes
1 can corn (or fresh if you’ve got it!)
1 avocado
1 can black olives
2/3 c cilantro

Mince garlic, chop de-seeded tomatoes, olives, avocado and fresh cilantro
Drain corn and chickpeas. Mix all ingredients and salt to taste.

    I bet this would be delicious with black beans, too.

    This would also be great on jicama “chips,” on green salad, or wrapped in romaine or Boston/butter leaves like lettuce cups/burritos!

    This are all great ideas. I love jicama and agree that would be a much healthier alternative to tortilla chips.
