Texas Caviar

We have had a lot of good food shared at potlucks with our fellow RVers. Here is the recipe to a super chip dip called Texas Caviar!  You'll notice corn in the pictured dip, but not in the recipe. This recipe is quite versatile.  We've heard of green beans being added sometimes. I wonder about water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, or heart of palms.  Have fun experimenting!

1 can blackeye peas with jalapenos drained
1 can field peas with snaps drained
1 can black olives (optional)
2 tomatoes chopped
2 buttons garlic chopped
1 red onion chopped
1 bell pepper chopped
2 avocados chopped (optional, but yummy!)
1 jar Italian salad dressing
Jalapenos (optional-We don't use.)

Mix all ingredients together. Refrigerate overnight. Serve with chips. Enjoy!
