Texas Caviar Dip

Texas Caviar

This is one of my go-to recipes for entertaining, pot luck dinners or easy dinners at home. It is great with tortilla and pita chips or on top of a chicken fajita salad or tacos. And, it is a cold dip so it is so refreshing in the summer!

Most traditional Texas Caviar recipes include black eyed peas, but I prefer the taste of black beans so this version has a little more of a Tex-Mex kick!


  • 1 can Rotel (mild or hot)
  • 1 can strained black beans
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 finely chopped jalapeno
  • 1 chopped avocado
  • The juice of one lime
  • 1/3 cup of chopped cilantro
  • 1/3 cup of finely chopped red onion
  • 3 tablespoons Italian dressing


So easy: mix everything together and refrigerate! Since the dip is so easy to make I love making homemade tortilla chips to go with it! No real “cooking” required!
