If your weekends look anything like ours, a good portion of your Sunday is spent watching your favorite football team. While I like watching Tom Brady as much as the next girl, most of the time I’m really in it for the excuse to make and eat lots of football snacks! Texas Caviar is the perfect dip for during the game. This recipe of my mom’s mixes green peppers, red peppers, two types of beans, corn and onions. The recipe makes an awesome salsa to pair with chips, but it is so versatile beyond that- I’ve used it on top of grilled chicken, fish and in salads.
Get ready to cheer on your favorite team and dip your chips with the recipe below! Oh, by the way…
- 1 can black beans
