Prep Time

Prep Notes

This recipe take a little time to assemble but is worth the effort.

Cooking Time





1 can shoepeg corn, 11 oz

1 can black bean, 15 oz (rinse and drain)

1-2 roma tomatoes- diced (discard pulp)

1 avocado, diced

¼ cup fresh cilantro, leaves only, chopped

1 T. diced red onion


¼ cup red wine vinegar

¼ cup olive oil

¼ tsp salt

1/8 tsp fresh ground pepper

2 cloves garlic, chopped or pressed

1 tsp ground cumin


Gently mix all of the cowboy caviar ingredients together in a medium bowl ( except avocado*)

Then blend the dressing ingredients together in a blender until smooth.  Pour over the caviar and toss gently. 

Refrigerate until ready to use. 

Serve with blue corn chips or regular corn chips.

*I like to add the avocado right before serving so it looks nice and fresh!


I also like to serve this appetizer in a tortilla with tacos!  Or just have a bowl of it for lunch!  it's that tasty!
