Texas Caviar Recipe

I couldn't resist sharing this Texas Caviar Recipe on National Caviar Day, July 18th.

Now caviar is a gourmet delicacy of fish eggs, the best many claim to be sturgeon roe (egg masses). However, our beloved Texans have a different take on this treat.

First, this caviar doesn't have anything to do with fish. Second, you don't have to go to a fancy restaurant or specialty store to find it. Third, you can make it right in your own kitchen!

My cousin introduced this recipe to me. This is the recipe she uses although she substitutes the pinto beans with black beans.

Give it a try. Feel free to modify the ingredients or quantities (like sugar) to your liking. It's a healthy treat but what's more, it's delicious!

Texas Caviar Recipe

1 can pinto beans, drained
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1 can (small) shoepeg or white corn, drained
1 C chopped celery
1/2 c chopped onion
1 small jar dry roasted peanuts (salted)
green chilis (optional)

On the stove, mix:
1 C canola oil
1/2 C cider vinegar
1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt and pepper

Boil to dissolve the sugar. Allow to cool.

Add to bean dip when cool. Chill in covered container. Better the next day. Serve with "Scoops" corn chips.
