Healthy Texas Caviar

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!
Healthy Texas Caviar
- 14 oz black-eyed peas, drained
- 15 oz white hominy, drained (alternatively corn can be used)
- 1 green or red bell pepper, finely chopped
- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped and seeded
- 1 cup white or yellow onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
- 1-2 fresh jalapenos, seeded or not (I used 1 seeded jalapeno)
- 1 cup favorite salsa
- 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste as needed
- Drain, chop, mince, seed and then combine everything in a large bowl. Serve with your favorite crackers or chips.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight or several hours before serving. (I have to admit, though, this stuff is pretty great right after all ingredients are combined.)

YUMMMMMY, Kim! This looks so good! Reminds me of the stuff they sell in one of the delis I go to pretty often. I had always been looking for a recipe. Can’t wait to try this out.
I hope you get a chance to give it a try! It’s super tasty!
I think if I were to make this, i’d definitely use as an egg topper, or even mixed with quinoa.
Mixed in with quinoa or brown rice is a great idea!
This looks so fresh and delicious! I would love to have a big scoop on some kind of taco salad.
Yum! It would be great on a taco salad!
Yum!! I am definitely trying this out. I love your ideas of topping eggs with it and serving it on a salad with a veggie burger. Thanks for sharing 🙂
