Cowboy Caviar Salsa is a crowd pleasing favorite! Packed with fresh tomatoes, avocados, cilantro, beans, corn, and lime goodness.
Have you ever had this delicious salsa before? It is definitely one of my all-time-favorite things to eat. I like it plain, on top of salads, on grilled chicken, with chips, with taquitos, on tamales. You name it, I love it!
So I was over at my friends house and she and I were talking, and we decided to whip some of this up. I had forgotten how darn good it is, and how easy it is to make. So now I have been making it weekly since. And even that is not often enough. There is just something so inviting about a big old bowl full of fresh avocado and tomato, and some corn, black beans, and seasonings. If you want to spice things up a bit feel free to add some jalapeno and hot sauce! I keep it mild because my kids dig in, and I love seeing them eat such a healthy snack!
The trick to getting this right is adjusting it to your preference. If you hate beans, leave them out. If you love tomato, add some extras in. Make it your own. Just use the recipe as a guide. And remember to scale it according to who you are serving. If it is for a party I suggest at least doubling the recipe, it usually goes quick!
