(recipe) tailgating texas caviar

Ya’ll know that I lived in Texas before moving to Arizona and that state still has a large piece of my heart. I especially miss the unique and just plain weird vibe of the city, the small town feel in a large city, going to Longhorn football games and the food. Oh, especially the food! If you get a chance to visit Austin, please go eat apple pancakes at Kerbey Lane and cheese enchiladas at Vivos for me. And don’t forget to grab some ice cream at Amy’s. This football season, I decided to bring a little bit of Texas to Arizona with some homemade Texas caviar. It’s the perfect game day recipe and super easy to make!


Black Beans (15 ounce can)

Yellow Corn (15 ounce can)

2 Tomatoes (chopped)

1 Jalapeno Chile Pepper (seeded and chopped)

1 White Onion (chopped)

Cilantro Leaves (1 bunch chopped)

Olive Oil (1/4 cup)

Directions: Drain and rinse corn and beans. Add them to a large bowl. Clean and chop tomatoes, jalapeno, onion and cilantro. Add those ingredients to the large bowl. Mix in olive oil. Chill in refrigerator and enjoy with chips or other dippers!
