Texas Caviar

READY IN: 24hrs 20mins
Recipe by MSZANZ

This is not the same as some of the other recipes for the same name. My family was reluctant to try this but loved it! Don't be intimidated by the laundry list of ingredients...they are mostly cans! Cooking time is refrigeration time. The recipe comes from a friend of the family. It needs 24 hours to marinate.

I made the marinade and then used it over 1 can each of yellow corn, black eyed peas, black beans, pinto beans, rotel tomatoes, green chiles. Drain everything but the green chiles. I added some crushed red peppers to the dressing. WONDERFUL!!!
