Cowboy Caviar Recipe

I made this for a 4th of July BBQ my family and I went to and let's just say it was standing room only over the bowl. It is addictive to say the least!

2 tbsps red wine vinegar
2 tsps hot sauce (this can be adjusted according to taste)
1 clove garlic
1 can black beans drained
1 can white corn drained
2/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 medium sized onion
1/2 pound tomatoes
2 avocados
1/2 lime


1. In a large bowl, mix vinegar, hot sauce, and garlic.

2. Drain and beans and corn. Add beans, corn, onions, cilantro, and tomatoes mix gently to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let this sit overnight. It can be made the day of, but it is better if you let it sit.

3.The next day, peel, pit, and cut avocado into 1/2-inch cubes. Add to mix. Cut lime and squeeze 1/2 of the lime over mixture. Gently stir.

Serve with tortilla chips.

Hope you enjoy!
