Cowboy Caviar

Cowboy Caviar or Avocado Salsa is pretty much a crowd pleaser! It’s packed full of fresh vegetables like bell peppers, tomatoes, sweet corn, black beans, juicy lime juice and spicy jalapeños if you want! It’s all tossed together with a flavorful dressing and best served with tortilla chips.

If you are looking for more yummy appetizer or dips I have you covered! My Jalapeno Ranch Dip is a great copy cat version of Chuy’s. Then if you are a fan of avocados you have to make my Easy Guacamole. Once of my most popular recipes is most definitely Cheesy Artichoke Dip. It’s perfect with baguettes, veggies or tortilla chips!
