Cowboy Caviar

I've shown this before but with summer on the way I thought it was worth showing again.  I made this yesterday and it sure is good stuff.  I serve it with tortilla chips but it is good as a salad too.

 Drain 1 can of black beans and 1 can of pinto beans and dump them in a bowl.  Add 1 can of diced green chilies.

 Add 1 bag of corn.

 Add 6 sliced green onions, 2 diced stalks of celery and 1 diced poblano pepper.  If you want it to be spicy, add several jalapeno peppers too. Add 2 diced tomatoes.

 Dice 1 bunch of fresh cilantro.

 In a separate bowl, add the juice of 4 limes, 1 T. tomato paste, 1 tsp. salt, 1 T. cumin, 1 T. chili powder, 1 T. granulated garlic, 1 T. granulated onion, 4 T. honey, 2 T. red wine vinegar and 1/3 C of oil.  Whisk this and pour it over the bean mix.
Let this sit at room temp for about an hour stirring occasionally.  Store covered in the fridge until ready to serve.  Make sure to give it another good stir before serving.


For a long time the only kind of beans one could buy here was brown beans, white beans and baked brown and white beans :-)

Thank god for immigrants because they are more used to other kinds so now the stores finally sell a lot different kinds here too.

This looks like a perfect summer salad and tortillas are never wrong :-)

Have a great day!
Still love the name, LOL!
My hubby would love this.

Whew, I would have to leave the cilantro out... and lighten up on the peppers, but it looks yummy!

Absolutely delicious!
If PH had not just come from the store, I would have made this for our beach picnic tomorrow! It sounds delicious. Another recipe for my notebook! :)
I've had something very similar to this and could sit and eat it all day long.. It's delicious!!
