Texas Caviar


Texas Caviar 3

Between a New Orleans pit stop to enjoy some good music and the start of a major Spivey Paint Project, I decided to embark on a new cold dip recipe this past weekend that my friend and coworker passed along to me. I had a little bit of time to spare early Saturday morning and threw it together before we started our day of painting. Since the dip tastes better the longer it marinates, I knew we would be able to give it a good taste test in time for the afternoon LSU football game. This is definitely the perfect football party dip. Not only does it make an enormous amount, it has all the proper ingredients for a dip addiction. I’m not exaggerating. It’s the type of dish that you try one bite and before you know it, you’ve eaten the entire bowl along with an entire bag of Fritos. Therefore, when you go to the store, make sure to buy the family size bag of Fritos.

As I mentioned before, I don’t do complicated and the most labored part of this recipe is chopping a handful of ingredients. Easy enough for me! I did add some fresh jalapenos that my neighbor recently shared with us from his garden but you can leave those out if you want. Enjoy Everyone!

Texas Caviar

½ white onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped and seeded

1 bunch of green onion, chopped

3 Roma tomatoes, chopped or 1 good size regular tomato

2 jalapenos, chopped

1 Zesty Italian Dressing (8 oz)

2 cans Rotel (original), do not drain

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can shoepeg corn

2 cans blackeye peas, drained

Mix all of the ingredients together and season to taste. I used Slap Your Mama’s but Tony’s would work too. Be careful not to use too much seasoning because it does intensify after marinating in the refrigerator. Note: I added the jalapenos to the recipe because I wanted an extra kick.

Welcome! I am the bayou gypsy, born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although I have spread my wings in the great cities of Austin, Seattle and Delray Beach, the bayou state kept calling me back home in 2007. Thank goodness for the pull back home because that is where I met and married my husband, Andrew. We relocated to 7 acres in Zachary, LA and have started life on a farm. It's the land of bayous, fishing, hunting, four wheelers, trucks, nutria, deer, cows, three rescue pups named Abby James, Dixie and Gypsy, two rescue horses named Sparkle and Freedom, 20 chickens, 2 turkeys named Leroy & Luann and everything else southern. I have started this personal blog to chronicle our new found farm life, the battles and blessings of our ongoing infertility, our recent adoption and the exciting adventures this bayou gypsy and her cowboy get into on the regular. I dabble in a little bit of everything and will share it all with you one wild ride at a time. Come wander with me...y'all!
