{THE BEST} TEXAS CAVIAR

Texas Caviar combines delicious fresh vegetables with an amazing Italian dressing…plus you get the added crunch of tortilla chips in the mix!

Texas Caviar…if you don’t know what that is, you can thank me for blessing your life with it. The name sounds odd, I know. The first few times I heard how amazing it was, I didn’t really listen because ummm… I don’t want to try caviar. Sounds pricey. And slimy.

Then I had it at a potluck and oh how my attitude changed. It has nothing to do with actual caviar, really it’s just a play on words in an attempt to describe a ridiculously easy appetizer that is absolutely amazing! Honestly, try it. Just be prepared to ditch the chips and grab some other utensil that allows you to eat more, faster. {Wait, is it just me?!}

This Texas Caviar version has an added ingredient that’s not normally found in other versions: avocado. Don’t leave it out. In my opinion it takes the dish from good to stellar. Other versions also use Black Eyed Peas, but I think they’re harder to find and cost more than regular beans. So I use regular cans of beans instead and you know what? It tastes the same!

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 3 good sized roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 bunch green onions, sliced
  • 2 large avocados, diced
  • about 1/2 a bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 8 oz {1 cup} Italian dressing ~ I use Good Seasons dressing packets that you mix yourself. It just takes 1 packet, that way you have it in your pantry to make another batch later on!
  • 1 small lime, sliced in half {I juice 1/2 the lime into the dish, then use the other half to garnish
  1. Add all ingredients to a large bowl, including Italian dressing.
  2. Stir.
  3. Serve with tortilla chips. It’s also amazing over chicken tacos or chicken enchiladas. Or quesadillas. Or just eaten by itself, as a snack. YUM.
