Cowboy Caviar

I first tasted this delicious dip when a friend brought it over for a game day. It was just the right thing... perfectly scoopable, enough colorful veggies to be slightly virtuous, and tons of flavor and creaminess from the avocado to make it seem sinful. I begged her for the recipe. Turns out it's pretty easy! I'm posting it here to a) share it with all of you, and b) save it for posterity since I've recently had the heartbreak of losing some recipes I had on pinterest to websites that disappeared. :(

Cowboy Caviar

from Creme de la Crumb

1 can black beans, drained
1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can corn, drained
1 avocado, diced
2 roma tomatoes, diced
½ red onion, diced
optional: 1 jalapeƱo, finely diced
juice of 1 lime
¼ cup cilantro, roughly chopped
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon chili powder

Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Stir to combine. Serve immediately with corn chips/tortilla chips, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Note: This doesn't taste bad at room temperature, it's quite good in fact. This is a good bet for a party where you need things that can be made ahead a bit and that are tolerant of sitting out. If you're concerned about leaving it out at room temp, refill a smaller bowl from the large one in the fridge. (Just don't use too small of a bowl... this one is a crowd pleaser!)


  1. That looks like it would be very tasty!

    1. It is! Great with chips or strong veggies, like big bell pepper wedges.
