Texas Caviar


This is a family favorite and the most requested dish to bring to parties.  The best part is that it is so simple to make.  When I am at the store to get the ingredients to this I just remember that there are SIX ingredients plus the marinade and I usually have the ingredients to the marinade on hand.  Here is the Recipe!  It is a little sweet and and little spicy.

1 Can of Black Beans
1 Can of Shoepeg Corn (or white corn)
1 small jar of Pimentos
1 Can of Blackeyed Peas
1 Medium Red Onion (Chopped into small pieces)
1/2 cup to 3/4 cup of Pickled Jalapeno Peppers (chopped into small pieces)

Drain all ingredients into a colander, and then pour into a bowl with a lid.


In a small sauce pan:

1 Cup of Sugar
1 Cup of White Vinegar
1/2 Cup of Olive Oil

Heat Marinade ingredients until sugar is melted.  Cool for a few minutes and pour over ingredients in your bowl with a lid, place the lid on the bowl and put in the fridge overnight or for at least 6-8 hours.

When you are ready to serve,  dump the whole concoction in your colander again to drain off the marinade, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT! (I didn't do this the first time I made it, oopps! I didn't read the instructions). Pour into your serving bowl!  Serve with Scoops, or it can also be served as a side dish.

This is a great appetizer with scoops, I have one friend that just eats it with a spoon!
