Cowboy Caviar

My husband brought this delicious recipe home from work several months ago.  A co-worker of his had brought some of this salsa/pico de gallo to share at lunch and we’re so glad he did.  We ‘ve been making it ever since!  


Cowboy Caviar
3 avocados
1 can of black eye peas
1 can of corn
4 or 5 Roma tomatoes
2 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
about 5 green onions
Juice from one small lime
3 large cloves minced garlic
a few shakes of Tabasco sauce
salt & pepper to taste
1 tablespoon vegetable oil



 Chop three avocados into very fine pieces.






 Rinse and drain black eye peas and corn. 






Seed and chop tomatoes into fine pieces.





Finely chop green onion.






Combine all of these ingredients into a bowl and then add minced garlic, Tabasco sauce, salt & pepper, and vegetable oil.  Finally, squeeze the juice from one small lime into the mixture.

Stir well to combine. 

Sometimes I add a handful of chopped cilantro for a little extra zing. 

Now, grab your favorite tortilla chips and dig in!
