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.
