cowboy caviar

This is by far the very best dip I have ever had! It has become a staple in my house.
Even my picky daughter, who refuses to eat beans of any kind no matter what, can’t stop
eating this stuff! Warning…….its addictive!

Cowboy Caviar

2- Lg Cans Petite diced tomatoes OR In season, about 8-10 large fresh tomatoes. diced

1- can Black beans drained and rinsed

1- can Black eyed peas

1- cans White shoe peg corn (Do not use regular canned corn)I use the bi-color corn on the cob when in season, one large ear is enough

1- Green peppers diced

1- med. Vidalia Onions diced

Diced Jalapeno peppers to taste (canned or fresh) I don’t use these. I like mine mild.

4 oz. Zesty Italian salad dressing any brand

Black pepper to taste

Mix together and serve with corn chips


Breakfast Burrito

                                                                     A favorite with my family.

1 pkg of 8 burrito wraps.  I use white flour ones.  1 lb roll sausage, your favorite kind.  10 large eggs, scrambled. 1/2 a green pepper chopped, and 1/2 a large sweet red pepper chopped and 1/2 large chopped sweet onion, saute all 3 in butter (about 4-5 tbs. )  til tender.  1 8 oz. bag shredded mexican cheese. not the one with the spices but the one with the four  different cheeses. Salsa.  Of course homemade is best but if you don’t have homemade, then get your favorite.  You notice there is no heat in this.  You can use spices when you make the sausage, I never do though.  Or You can use hot pepper cheese.   And You can use the salsa to spice it up.  And of course you can always put hot peppers in with the green and red sweet peppers.  I keep mine fairly mild and let each person spice it up with an offering of mild, to not so mild salsas.

I heat the wrap one at a time, in a heated skillet with a little melted butter.  As it heats I put a generous amount of shredded cheese on to melt.  This only takes less than a min. to heat up the burrito shell.  You don’t want it cooked.  Don’t worry if the cheese isn’t melted, the heat from the meat will take care of that.  Now take the shell from the pan and place it on a plate.  Take  about 1/4 cup cooked  sausage, still hot from the pan, and place it in the middle, spreading it out lengthwise.  then do the same with the green and  red peppers and onions.  add more cheese and begin at the bottom.  The bottom is the part nearest you.   Fold about 1/3 of it  over the top and then take one of the sides and fold it over then the other side, folding it over the top. Garnish with some sour cream and salsa, sprinkle a little more cheese on top.
