Super Bowl Finger Food: Cowboy Caviar
Recipe offers a delicious and healthy alternative to cheesy dips for the big game.
This recipe comes from my best friend, Tera Neirath. Not only is she an incredibly beautiful human being, inside and out, but she works tirelessly each day helping others as a nurse at Huron Valley Hospital. She also happens to make amazingly delicious food.
At a party she had a few months ago she made a dip with avocados, beans and corn—a recipe she called cowboy caviar. I had never heard of it before, but it tasted so good I was hooked.
Neirath, who got the recipe from her Huron Valley Hospital co-worker Heather Nealson, surprised me with the recipe and some cookbooks for my birthday last month.
In her honor, I made this recipe to share with you. It's not only delicious, but it is healthier than most dips and great for snacking during a big game like the Super Bowl this weekend.
To make cowboy caviar you will need the following:
- 2 cans (15 oz. each) of black beans, rinsed
- 1 can (17 oz.) of whole kernel corn, drained
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 large avocado, diced
- 1/2 of a red onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup of chopped cilantro
- 1 tbsp. of red wine vinegar
- 3-4 tbsp. of lime juice
- 2 tbsp. of olive oil
- 1 tsp. of salt
- 1/2 tsp. of pepper
