I first tried Texas Caviar while at my husband's family reunion in Austin during Thanksgiving last year. This recipe duplicated what my sister-in-law made for us perfectly, except she had added red onion. I used a medium shallot and also added some tobasco sauce, cumin, and a little chili powder to spice it up some to meet my family's desire for a spicier flavor. Everyone loved this recipe and couldn't stop eating it. I have had several requests for the recipe from guests who shared this delicious snack with us. I have also served this as a side dish with grilled chicken and as a relish on cheese quesadillas. I will make this recipe over and over again. Thanks for posting this terrific recipe!
Super easy, put should have used zingier dressing. I thought I had some but had to make my own. Put everything together, didn't wait on tomatoes and cilantro.
Best that I have tried!! Will make this often.
Usually when I see a recipe that includes the word 'caviar' I go right on by, but will admit that 'Texas' does grab at me, so . . . Glad I didn't pass on this one, 'cause THIS STUFF IS GREAT! Most definitely A WINNER, & I'll be including it with my other dips on my finger food counter from now on! Thanks for a great recipe!

this stuff is great! i am not a big beans person and i really like it. we always bring it to barbeques and parties and everyone asks us for the recipe too! we add green onions and a can of white northern beans and we use A LOT less dressing. good stuff
It's a hit!!! Very tasty, although I was asked to make it a little "hotter" next time, so may add a scotch bonnet or habenero pepper along with the jalapenos. Thanks for posting this!
