Earlier this week, before I went on “partial bed rest” we went swimming and grilled out and enjoyed the perfect summer afternoon! One of my favorite things about summertime is spending it outdoors in the pool or enjoying time with friends and family and good food. We love to grill year round, but there is something about a BBQ or grilled chicken in the summer that makes me excited. This week, we made some Texas Caviar as the perfect appetizer for our pool day and we have been enjoying it all throughout the week. I love Texas Caviar because it is delicious and healthy! Win-win!
Texas Caviar Recipe:
Texas Caviar Recipe
- 1 can of sweet corn
- 1 can of black beans
- 2 cans of black eyed peas
- 1 can of rotel
- 10 (or so) Mozzetta Golden Greek Peperocinis, chopped
- Half bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing
- Cilantro to taste
- Pour it in a bowl and mix it all up. Refrigerate until ready to serve. It is best after it sits for a little while.
If you haven’t noticed in your neck of the woods, summer is definitely here. It’s been SO hot here in Alabama these last few weeks. So, if you’re like me and you are ready to cool off in the pool, eat lots of ice cream and get your grills fired up, then check out this amazing giveaway from Mezzetta!

Mmmm…I had my first taste of Texas caviar 1-2 years ago…and it’s SO delicious. The last recipe I used didn’t have the pepperoncinis in it…but I LOVE the taste of them, so I’m definitely pinning this as an idea for my next get together…happy Friday!

I love these dump and serve recipes. I tend to just put a bunch of things together and then I can’t ever remember what I put in it. So I’ll bookmark this one to try next!

I’ve heard of Texas caviar, but have never tried it. It looks amazing! I always have beans in my pantry, so I’ll have to give this a try!

This is the first time I’ve heard of Texas Caviar, and I am all about this yummy recipe! It’s so fun to find new side dishes that can freshen up the summer BBQ menu. Thanks for sharing yours. 🙂
I love this stuff!!!! I can probably eat my weight in it 😀 Trader Joe’s makes some that is pretty good, but does not compare to making it at home. I have a recipe from my cousin, but I will gladly give yours a shot.
How perfect is this for summer time?!
I had to come comment on this because we were just at dinner and saw Texas Caviar on the menu and none of us knew what it was! Well now I know and can’t wait to use your recipe to make some!
Absolutely perfect. I’ve seen so many recipes for Texas caviar that I’m going to have to give it a try! Thanks for sharing this with us on #shinebloghop, Logan! Happy you could join us this week 🙂

Oh yum! I grew up eating this as a side dish, but we call it Cowboy Caviar. Texas and cowboys, same difference. 😉 Your recipe looks delicious, love the Italian dressing add.
