Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar

Yum. Yum. Yum.  I can’t enough of this recipe.  As a new mom, we were fortunate to have a few meals dropped off from friends and fellow church members.  One of them came from a fellow Kalamazoo native and included this incredible dip.  Luckily, I follow her pins on Pinterest, so it took just a few clicks to find the recipe.

So, behold: Cowboy Caviar.  A huge thanks to the Rigneys blog for posting the recipe.  I am always looking for good snack food and this one fits the bill – it’s healthy, inexpensive, contains easy-to-find ingredients and has a decent shelf life.  Plus, it has a bunch of veggies in it.  (My husband and I are great at eating fruit; not so much at eating vegetables.)

cowboy caviarSince there are just two of us, I made a half recipe.  I used two peppers – green and orange, and half of everything else.  Mix together and marinate overnight.  It was hard to resist eating it the first day, but the wait paid off – it is delicious!  A little sweet with the vinegar and super fresh with the cilantro.

We’ve been eating it with tortilla chips, and for dinner last night, we added it to grilled chicken wraps.  It’s a great dip to bring to a party or just to have around the house.  Enjoy!
