Texas Caviar 2 ways!


This is a fun and super easy dip that you can make for cheap! Not to mention that it’s not too fattening and feeds a million people! We had this at our Southern Comfort Food Couples Shower last week and it was so good I wanted to make it again for The Husband and I!

This recipe comes from my daughter Bethany, but you can find TONS of slight variations of this online!

4 cans Blackeyed Peas ~ Drained

2 cans white corn ~ Drained

1 med. can diced tomatoes ~ slightly drained

24 oz. Salsa

1 small zesty Italian Dressing

1 large Vidalia Onion ~ chopped (if you don’t have Vidalia’s …I’m sorry, use any sweet onion!)

1 large Green Pepper ~ chopped

Mix and refrigerate overnight ~ Serve with big freetoes or baked scoops!


This full recipe would feed maybe 40-50 people as an appetizer. I cut it in half for The Husband and I and will take some to Stephie and Jon …

Didn’t I tell you it was easy? Just mix…



And serve…(after it sits in the fridge overnight!)



Bethany is getting married at the end of May and like the rest of us around this fam, she’s on a Wedding Diet! She told me that with the left-overs from the shower, she’d been making turkey wraps for lunch…I had to try this! So I found good ole Bob Green’s “Best Life” whole wheat flatbread…


Some turkey breast, sharp provolone cheese and added a bit of the dip…


I’m not fond of the photo of the wrap, but let me tell you it was good!!! And if you leave off the cheese well I’m pretty sure you’d burn a few hundred calories eating it! (This is me in denial!)


Happy Friday Peeps! If you want some more yumalicious food ideas head over to Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday!



  1. This is a family favorite for us. Our version is a little different, but love it because it is so lowfat and so good for you! We use one can of black beans and one can of blackeyed peas and a huge bunch of cilantro.

    The flatbread idea looks great. We eat it on grilled chicken, salads instead of dressing, and baked potatoes.

  2. this looks great. what anice munch this can be either alone or as a center bowl.

  3. This is a great recipe!

  4. Looks delish–will try it.

  5. Thanks for all the great food tips 🙂 From the mac-n-cheese yesterday to Texas caviar today… yummo!!

  6. Yum, love black-eyed peas!
    Cheers, Candy

  7. This looks easy and delicious. I love easy especially in the summer months. Will give this one a try. Thanks for sharing.

  8. We ate such typical, hearty farm food growing up… which makes that look like you’re speaking a different language! I’m guessing it would be too “zesty” for all the medications sitting in my stomach, but I love the fact that it looks pretty and colorful 🙂

  9. This would be very satisfying, even without being on a diet! I would imagine it tasted as wonderful as it looks.
    I’ve enjoyed my fist visit to your blog. I’ll come by again.
    please stop by for a visit, I’d like the company.

    Sweet wishes,
