Cowboy Caviar- Trader Joe's Copycat Recipe








 This stuff rocks! I found the recipe on Happy Herbivore



Ingredients:




1     15 ounce can black beans- drained and rinsed

1     14.5 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes

1     16 ounce jar salsa verde

1     15 ounce can corn- drained *

dash of chili powder- used McCormick Hot Mexican-Style Chili powder 

Few shakes of red pepper flakes

juice from one lime

Directions:

Combine the tomatoes with their juices, drained and rinsed black beans, drained corn, salsa verde, chili powder and the red pepper flakes into a large pot.

Heat over low heat until thoroughly warm.

At this point you can add the lime juice to taste.

Can be served warm ( which would be easy in a crockpot) or let it cool and serve it cold. It doesn't matter. It's delicious.

* The original recipe called for frozen corn, I had a can of corn so I used that.

  1. I also love Trader Joes. This recipe is a keeper. Going to try this for sure. I buy Trader Joes corn relish...it is so good. A bit hot and really tasty. Thanks for sharing this.....I must have it now.

    1. This has the "bite" you want! You can also add more to taste.

  2. Our Trader Joe's is almost an hour away so I hardly ever get there. They do have some cool items-I love poking around on the rare occasion I shop there.

    That dip looks delicious. Salsa verde is another thing I rarely buy-my hand always seems to gravitate towards the red one.

    I need to step outside my comfort zone and live a little! :)

    Thanks for the great review and what a super photo-makes me wanna go find the tortilla chips and SCOOP! Thank you to Lindsay for the recipe. Isn't it nice to be able to replicate those products you love at home?

    1. Carol- Marlene from Depo's made those pot holders- don't they go well with the Cowboy Caviar?

    2. They DO go well-the colors make the caviar pop. Did she knit or crochet them?

  3. We don't have Trader Joe's here. Still, I hear a lot of good things about it.
    I like that there is no sour cream or cream cheese in this. Don't get me wrong, I like both. It's just difficult to find a dip type dish without them! I'm with Carol...I want to grab a chip and scoop!
    Thank you for linking this week.

  15. It's hard to go wrong with black beans and corn. Such a yummy combination! I must live under a rock, though, because I've never heard of Trader Joe's. Sounds like they have delicious stuff!
