One of the first things my husband Ryan cooked for me was his Texas Caviar recipe. Also known as Three Bean Salsa, he’s been making this dip for as long as I can remember. If you want the truth, I was a pretty picky eater when I married my husband. I didn’t even like salsa. I would dip my chip into salsa to get a little juice on my chip, but leave all the good stuff (onion, tomatoes, etc) in the bowl. But, from the moment he made this Texas Caviar recipe for me, I was a salsa convert. There is just something about the combo of beans, onions, and tomatoes that I love. Which is awesome, because I’m always trying to find ways to sneak in more vegetables.
Speaking of vegetables, try this Garlic Roasted Veggie recipe. It’s quick and easy. My favorite!
In Ryan’s attempt to widen my somewhat limited tastes, he would chop up entire batches of this salsa. We would gorge ourselves until our bellies were full of salsa goodness. We’ve made this recipe for family members, friends, barbecues, and parties. It’s versatile, makes plenty for a group, and is oh. so. yummy!
Texas Caviar or Three bean salsa
This recipe makes a lot. If it’s just two of you, you might struggle to get through it all in a reasonable amount of time. Instead, plan for a party! Although the recipe isn’t difficult, it does take a lot of chopping. Remember to use gloves when you cut up the jalapenos. You can also add less than the 3-6 jalapenos if you like your salsa with a little less kick. Get your knife and chopping board ready. I know you’ll love this salsa recipe just as much as I do!
Do you love salsa? What do you eat it on? I’m a chip girl myself, but I’ll take it on veggies or salad too.
