Texas Caviar

Don’t let the name fool you, this is NOT made with giant fish eggs!!

2- 14 oz cans black eyed peas drained. (you can substitute any kind of bean you want… or all. I’ve had a lot of different beans in this side dish.

1 15 1/2 oz can white hominy drained

4 green onions chopped or half sweet onion with green onion (1/2 cup white onion)

2 garlic cloves minced

1 med green, red, orange, or yellow bell pepper

1 (or more if you like it hot) jalapeno pepper chopped

1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped. I use cilantro…. very good flavor

1 8 oz bottle italian dressing.


Mix all ingredients- pour salad dressing over mixture, mix, cover and let marinate for at least 2 hours in refrigerator…

DRAIN, serve with tortilla chips.


This is so good, you’re peeps will want the recipe. It makes for a great side dish or put with your chips n dips!!!
