We love Texas Caviar. I think most recipes are pretty similar! This is the recipe that Brent grew up having. We’ve been making it for years. He actually typically makes it and I watch….and eat. It’s pretty healthy and delicious! We typically eat ours with Scoops, but you can eat it with just about anything or, if you’re like me, a spoon does just fine 🙂
2 Cans of black eyed peas with jalapenos
1 Can original Rotel
2 Medium sized avocados
1 Large green bell pepper
1/2 Large purple onion
3/4 Cup Zesty Italian – We use Kraft’s “Free”
Dice avocados, bell pepper & onion and put in large bowl. Cut lime in half and squeeze juice over avocados, bell pepper & onion. The lime is to give flavor and preserve the avocado. Place black eyed peas in strainer and rinse then, add to add to bowl. Poor can of Rotel in the bowl with it’s juice. Finally, add the Zesty Italian. Mix with a large spoon. Don’t stir too hard or much as the avocados could get smushy depending on the ripeness you buy.
If you try to eat the dip right away, the bell pepper and onion will be quite crunch. It is best if the bowl sits in the fridge and everything marinates for a while.
