There are so many different modifications that can be made to this Texas Caviar recipe to suit every taste! Below is the mild version that's sure to please everyone in the family. But if you like things spicy like we do, dicing up a jalapeno, habanero, or adding some red pepper flakes will really heat things up!
Yields: 6 serving
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz.) can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz.) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 avocado, pitted and diced
1 medium red onion, diced
1 medium bell pepper, diced
½ to 1 bunch fresh, chopped cilantro (I usually use more)
¼ c. lime juice
1/8 c. olive oil
1 tbsp. ground cumin
Salt and pepper, to taste
Combine beans, avocado, onion, peppers, and cilantro in a large bowl. Whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl and pour over the bean mixture. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
