Cowboy Caviar [Trader Joe's Copy]

Don't you love it when people do all the work for you?  Sometimes, it's just so nice to not have to figure out how much of what ingredient, matched with how much of another ingredient, will yield the same, or very similar flavor of a known favorite.

Well, over at Milo&Me, the secrets to Trader Joe's addictive Cowboy Caviar are revealed in the form of a recipe.

A recipe, I unashamedly made and took to a party not to long ago and got rave reviews for.  Well done, Milo&Me for such a fabulous copy-cat recipe. (I did make my version oil-free, and very low spice, but we all still loved it!)

Cowboy Caviar

  • 3 roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 large avocado, diced

-- Combine everything in a serving bowl and gently stir well to combine
-- Add red pepper flakes, or hot sauce, if you want there to be a kick.
