Cowboy Caviar // A delicious appetizer that's perfect for any #gameday or party! Your guests will fall in love with all the great flavors that are married together in this fantastic Cowboy Caviar #appetizer #snack #partyfood // Tried and TastyIt’s Super Bowl Sunday! Although I don’t give much of a care for football, I will tell you I’m excited for two reasons. 1) My dad LOVES the Seattle Seahawks. He’s been a fan since before I was born (so he’s not one of those bandwagon fans). As soon as I learned they were going to the Super Bowl I immediately called him up to hear his excitement. I’m happy for him, and hope that is team does well! 2) game day food!!!! The appetizers, party snacks, and finger foods are what I live for on this day whether I watch the game or not! 

Ever heard of Cowboy Caviar? You may have or you may have not. It’s pretty much just a bunch of diced up veggies coated with a delicious dressing to make one of my favorite dips of all time. I was first introduced to this by my friend at work who had brought it for a pot luck years ago. It was then that I realized what I had been missing all the year before.. and now, I’ll never have to go without again because I’ve got the recipe! It’s super simple: chop, drizzle, stir. Can you get much easier than that?! I think not! If you don’t have time to make this for the big game, no worries – it’s delicious any day of the year!

    yum!! I don’t like real caviar, but this is right up my alley!! I love beans and everything in this!! YUM!!!

    I’ve never heard of this called Cowboy Caviar until recently! But I seriously have been making something like this since I was 12! It’s one of my favorite recipes for summer. We seriously make it every other week!

  3. Kay

    I am stumped by an ingredient you mentioned in the Cowboy Caviar! What is “shoepeg”?? I’ve never heard of it, much less that it comes in a can!!

    1. Yvonne

      Great question! If you aren’t looking for it, you’ll miss it – but it’s in the canned food section with all the other corn and beans.

    I sure loved all of your ideas. I’ve added them to my recipes to make in the next few weeks. The Cowboy Caviar looks really great too! Can’t wait to try them all.
