Texas Caviar

I love this dish. It's very tasty with so many flavors going on. It's cool and refreshing and you don't have to turn on the oven to make it!


1 - 15 oz can black-eyed peas
1 - 15 oz can white hominy
1 - chopped bell pepper (any color)
1 - small chopped onion
1/2 - bottle of Zesty Italian salad dressing

Optional ingredients:

1 finely chopped jalapeno
1/2 pound sausage or hamburger meat
2 tbsp's chopped cilantro
a couple of dashes of your favorite hot sauce

Open all cans, drain water/juice. Put all ingredients into a bowl. Salt and pepper to taste.We usually add the jalapeno's if we know that everyone coming over likes them. Add enough Zesty Italian dressing to coat all ingredients, but not too much that the recipe is sitting in the dressing. Put in the refrigerator for about an hour and serve chilled. And that's it!

We serve it as an appetizer with tortilla chips or if we really want it bad enough, we have it as a side dish. Either one works. Serves a BUNCH!!
