This cowboy caviar is loaded with Mexican favorites like black beans, sweet corn, avocado, and a delicious variety of other ingredients that blend perfectly together in this easy to make dip.
“I want tacos” –(The hubs.)
The text I literally just got right now, as I sat down to talk to you about this Cowboy Caviar (AKA, “Mexican Corn Dip”). Can he read my mind? (We do that sometimes. More and more every day actually. It’s becoming a bit creepy. And he probably knows that I just said that.)
But yes, I was planning on using this leftover dip to throw into some tacos tonight with some seasoned ground beef. The fact that we even have any of this leftover to use in a meal is surprising, but, since this feeds 6 people, that’s probably a good thing. It’s filled with all of your favorite Mexican flavors, and is served cold so it’s easy to make ahead of time and keep in the fridge. That’s my kinda recipe peeps.
IF by any chance meat and cheese is calling your name instead, I have two words for you. Cowboy Queso. I dare you to check out that recipe and watch the video. Before you know it, you’ll be dipping warm tortilla chips into meaty, cheesy-deliciousness while you toss your sombrero in the air with glee. Yes, with glee.
