Tailgating 2.0: Cowboy Caviar

tailgating recipes, cowboy caviar recipe, black bean recipes, avocado bean dip

Great looking cowboy caviar including avocado, beans, peppers corn and tomatoes for a healthy dip at your next tailgate. Great photo and recipe courtesy of Krystal from www.recipesofacheapskate.blogspot.com

When I saw this recipe from Krystal on her blog “Recipesofacheapskate,” I knew this would be perfect to feature in my “Tailgating 2.0″ line up!

When I lived in Atlanta, I did a lot of tailgating at the U

GA games and “Cowboy Caviar” was a tailgate staple with all my girlfriends. This dip is full of veggies, good monounsaturated fat and fiber from the beans so you don't have to feel to guilty for noshing on this at a game or party!

Thanks again to Krystal for sharing her recipe and wonderful photo!


  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn, rinsed
  • 2-3 tomatoes, diced
  • 1-2 bell peppers, diced
  • 2-3 avocado, diced
  • approx 5 green onions, chopped
  • handful cilantro, minced finely
  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • corn chips, for serving

Combine the above (except the chips) in a large bowl.  Stir gently, so as not to destroy the avocado, and let chill for about 30 minutes before serving so the flavors will mix together nicely.  Serve with corn chips.

    I love this stuff. I have a similar recipe that is called Texas Caviar. It’s one of those “can’t stop eating” things. :)

    ha ha, i totally agreed. I am the same way with guacamole. I have to literally pull myself away from the table :)
