Texas Caviar

So good I could eat it with a spoon. Although I do prefer it with tortilla chips. Or quesadillas. Or burritos. (Etc.)

Texas Caviar

1 can shoepeg corn
1 can black-eyed peas
1 can diced green chilies (I use half a can)
4-6 tomatoes, diced
1 bell pepper diced (I like orange or yellow best but I used red in this batch)
diced: cilantro, green onions, garlic (to taste)
¼-1/2 cup zesty italian dressing (sometimes I use fresh lime juice and cut back on the dressing)
1/2 - 2 jalapenos, depending on how hot you like it (optional)
Salt, pepper, and Tabasco to taste (I never include Tabasco)

Mix together in a big bowl and chill overnight for best flavor (I usually can’t wait that long).
