Texas Caviar

Looking for a delicious snack for game day? This Bean Dip or Texas Caviar recipe is not only colorful, but packed with flavor!

One of the best parts of this recipe is it can be made in advance. And, secondly, it feeds a crowd! I’ve kept this in my fridge for up to a week, nibbling daily (it’s dangerous!). I think it would be great on a salad. Or over fish. Still have leftovers at the end of the week? Make a taco soup and toss this in (after draining the liquid).

  1. Dips are the perfect party food! Now I’m craving a big bag of chips and this delicious recipe…yum!

  2. I would be guilty of finishing off the entire dip while everyone else was at school and work.  LOL!  What a great and versatile dip!!!  Love all the colors in it!

  3. I am a dip fiend and this one looks so addicting. I never thought that I’d have something in common with an 11 year old kid (other than an affinity for fart jokes), but I have to agree with your son’s bf. This is an all occasion kind of dish. Get me the chips! 

  4. Awesome dip Amy! I love anything with beans in it. This would be a real crowd pleaser. Especially with those awesome corn chips!
