Recipe~Cowboy Caviar with Grilled Corn

I wanted to get this one out to you before the holiday weekend begins. I made this a few days ago to test run for an upcoming catering event. I also had a friends birthday party to go to and it went perfect with the rest of the BBQ style menu.

Cowboy Caviar with Grilled Corn


1 can black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 ears of corn, husks removed and grilled until tender
2 avocados, diced
3 medium tomatoes (yellow and red)
1/4 cup sweet onion, chopped fine
1 garlic clove, minced 
1 jalapeno, seeds removed and chopped fine
1/4 cup cilantro
1 Tb balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper

Put everything but avocado in a medium size bowl. Combine well and fold in avocado. Serve right away or chill in fridge until ready to use. Serve with tortilla chips or eat as is.

I hope you all have a great and safe Holiday weekend!!!
