I LOOOOVVVVEEEE this recipe so much and you’re going to love it too! The first time I tried Texas Caviar was at a work Pinterest party. Everyone brought something they had made from a Pinterest recipe. It’s a really fun idea, we’ve had a couple of these. Anyway, one of my coworkers brought Texas Caviar and I was trying my best to pass up all of the super indulgent recipes and go for the healthier foods. The Texas Caviar immediately caught my eye….. it looked light, fresh and really healthy.  Oh, am I glad that I tried this stuff out! Talk about fresh and delish!!!!

This Texas Caviar is super versatile. There are so many great uses for it. I made this yesterday and, let me tell you, it makes a HUGE bowl…. well, between Brad and I there’s barely any left. He said, “this stuff is so addicting”!

We scooped it on chips and crackers, he covered his eggs with it, I used it as a salad topping and he ate it mixed in with brown rice with a chicken breast. It’s that good, guys!

Instructions
  1. Drain, chop, mince, seed and then combine everything in a large bowl. Serve with your favorite crackers or chips.
