You Need to Try Cowboy Caviar

I'm always looking for new recipes. I like variety and I'm always up for new dishes to become family favorites. When Coach Dean sent me over this one I knew it was going to be good. I tweaked the original recipe to match what I had on hand and voila!

Cowboy Caviar

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 2 cups of water
  • 1 onion , diced
  • 3 tomatoes , diced
  • 1 jalapeno, (optional) diced 
  • 1 bunch of chives, chopped
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 can corn, or fresh cooked
  • 1 can black bean, or 1 cup cooked
  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar, or white

Rinse the quinoa well. Add it to the two cups of water and bring to a boil. Once its boil cover your pot and continue cooking the quinoa in low heat for 10 more minutes. Remove from heat, remove lid and let it cool down.

While it is cooling down, add all your veggies diced to a large mixing bowl. This makes a lot so make it a big bowl. Add the cooled quinoa and blend well all together. Season with red wine vinegar or white, olive oil, and salt all to your preference of taste. And last add a handful of chopped up cilantro and blend all together one more time. Bonn appetite! Best to chill for several hours before eating.

NOTE: This could be done with any color quinoa

I served this along side chicken enchiladas. The next evening I served it on top of Papa Dean's Spicy Blend.
