Texas Caviar

1 Feb

Note: Hi ya’ll, this is Mary. But this is Alayna’s post below. We put this post in now because we thought it would be a delicious appetizer for the great summit of the pig skins, AKA the Super Bowl. You know what we say, Who wants wings when you can have pinto beans? Enjoy ladles.

Texas Caviar is one of those things that my mom makes that is just SO DELICIOUS but I usually don’t think about. But it’s so good! And easy! And I had a few people over for a barbecue (see Mary, this is one of the pluses of DC… I have a yard! With a grill!) the other week and clearly had to make it. And, no surprise, everyone loved. In fact, everyone loved it this much:

(Mary says: Doesn’t that picture look nice? It reminds me of another time long, long ago. When there wasn’t snow. It’s hard to remember life without snow.)

That’s right. Throwing leaves in the air excited. You should try it.

Texas Caviar

  • Drain one can each sweet corn, pinto beans, and kidney beans and combine in a bowl with half a chopped red onion, a handful of chopped parsley, 2-3 chopped tomatoes and about one cup of italian dressing. Mix well and let sit.
  • Serve with tortilla chips.
