Whip up deliciousness in 10 minutes…

Simple recipes look at Texas caviar and contemplate why they’re so complex. After all, Texas caviar is simply a mishmash of eight ingredients, chopped, and stirred together. But oh how good it is…

There’s that zip of jalapeño, that earthiness of black beans, and that sweetness of corn. And that’s only phase one of flavor. Add in tangy tomato, fresh cilantro, and pungent white onion and you have a taste explosion!

Texas caviar is a dip in only the loosest of terms since the ingredients are all simply chopped – think more chunky salsa without the liquid. There’s just a little olive oil to provide a very light olive-y taste (a perfect foil to the big flavor of cilantro) and a cohesive shine.

For party situations and game days, the recipe easily doubles (or triples) to make enough for the whole crowd. It’s perfect with tortilla chips, pita, or crispbreads. If you want a little more spiciness, consider using one to two serrano peppers instead of the jalapeño. The serrano peppers have the same bright grassy flavor, but with typically double the heat (and sometimes more).
