Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy cavierThere are many recipes for this dish out there and this one is mine. I warn you though this stuff is addictive. I save and freeze the drained liquid from the cans. I then use it in veggie soup or stew. Waste not, want not is my belief. This is great pantry go to recipe. Fast and easy!


  • 1 can (15 oz) Black Eyed Peas or Purple Hull Peas, drained
  • 1 can (15 oz) Whole Sweet Corn, drained
  • 1 can (10 oz) Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies
  • 2 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar, white or brown
  • 2 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
  • 2 Tsp Hot Sauce, I use Yucatan Sunshine Habanero Sauce
  • 1 clove Garlic, peeled and pressed or 1 tsp dried Garlic Powder
  • 1 cup chopped fresh Cilantro
  • 1 small Sweet Onion, small diced
  • 1/8 Black Pepper
  • Sea salt to taste

Mix all ingredients. Chill and serve with tortilla chips.
