Fresh, Fun Dip Recipe & Link Up!!

We are closing in on our settlement date, so we have been getting by on meals that consist of pasta, peanut butter sandwiches, and frozen pizza lately. Yes, total #wifefail if you ask me. But, over the weekend, we joined some friends at their home for some football, and the hostess made this yummy dip as an appetizer!! I just had to share!

Cowboy Caviar (or Fresh Salsa Dip) Recipe

1 avocado
1 red onion
2 tomatoes
1 can black beans
2 cups cooked corn
2 jalapenos (can omit)
2 Tbsp red vine vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

Prepare corn per package instructions (I use frozen). Chop avocado, red onion, tomatoes and jalapeno into small pieces. Rinse black beans and strain. Strain corn and add corn and black beans to large bowl. Add avocado mixture to bowl. Then add vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper and mix together well. Finely chop cilantro and add to mixture

Refrigerate mixture before serving. Serves well with corn chips.

There was a bunch of dip leftover, so I got to take some home! We grilled tilapia last night and I used it to garnish the fish! It was divine.
