Healthy Cowboy Caviar

“”It’s a holiday, I can splurge!”
“I hate holidays because I get so off track with my eating habits!”
Every heard either of these phrases before? Have you sat there and weighed out your food options at a holiday party, family reunion or summer BBQ? Why do we put ourselves through this torture? Why not “have your cake and eat it too” so to speak?
Guess what, you can! Today I’ll teach you how to make a super delish, super fresh and yummy, summer dip! Cowboy caviar can help satisfy your craving for dips and keep you on track.
Ingredients you’ll need:
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans, rinsed
  • 1 (15 oz) can of black eyed peas
  • 1 (17 oz) can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 large avocado, diced
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers (green and orange for color)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Dressing:

  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3-4 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
Gather all of your ingredients together. Then combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Next cover and chill in your fridge for a bit. After your caviar is chilled add avocado slices and cilantro! (The cilantro makes the whole bowl pop with flavor! YUMMM!) Finally serve with your choice of chips.
I love blue corn chips for an authentic feel. However, this dip is also good with pita chips, nut chips or any chip of your choice. By choosing baked chips you can stay on track and still enjoy a delicious, summer snack! Or you can just eat it straight out the bowl with a spoon. 🙂 Enjoy!”
