Cowboy Caviar is an easy, fresh and flavorful dip made with black-eyed peas, hominy, and veggies all tossed in your favorite salsa. Endlessly adaptable, it's the perfect tasty, light, make-ahead dip for any party or gathering!

  • 1 (14 ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained
  • 1 (15 ounce) can white hominy drained (corn can be used instead)
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 2 medium tomatoes, seeded & chopped
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 1-2 fresh jalapeños, seeded or not (I used 1 seeded jalapeño)
  • 1 cup salsa (use your favorite)
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste, as needed
  1. Drain, chop, mince, seed all ingredients and then combine everything in a large bowl. Serve with your favorite crackers or chips or as a topping or side salad.
Recipe Notes

For the best flavor, I recommend covering and refrigerating overnight or several hours before serving. This recipe keeps well for about 3-4 days in the refrigerator.
