Football season is finally here! I must confess – I like to tailgate more than I like to go to the games. I found this version of Cowboy Caviar and thought it would be good for tailgates. Tadd really liked it. I guess that means it is a keeper!
Black Bean and Corn Salsa
adapted from Real Mom Kitchen
- 1 (15 oz) can corn, drained
- 1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 (10 oz) can rotel
- ½ – 1 cup prepared Italian dressing
- ½ Tsp lime juice
- ½ tsp chili powder
Add corn, black beans, and rotel to a bowl. Use enough salad dressing to cover all of the mixture. Add lime juice and chili powder and mix well. Put in refrigerator for at least 1 hour but 12-24 hours is best. When ready to serve, drain salsa in a colander to remove excess liquid. Serve with tortilla chips.
Does anybody remember the Sonic Grilled Chicken Southwestern salad? It had something like this on top. Lettuce, with cherry tomatoes, shredded cheese, grilled chicken pieces, and a black bean/corn/salsa type thing. I got it with Ranch dressing. Do you think this would work for that? I’ve searched and searched, this is the closet one to what I remember it looked like. Thanks a bunch. I’m going to try it.
I just had to try it after you were talking about it. Hate that you were sick and couldn't bring it to the office tailgate.
its one of my favorites. Glad you guys liked it. I should have known Tadd liked it! Smart man.
