Texas Caviar AKA Black Bean Salad

Texas Caviar AKA Black Bean Salad- serve with tortilla chips- great for any gathering as an appetizer!
Before typing up this recipe, I had to search my archives because I could not even believe that I have not shared this recipe until now. It is a family favorite and all summer long, it is what I brought to pretty much every potluck that we attended. 

Now before you get freaked out that I am sharing a caviar recipe, there is no fish eggs in this recipe. Texas caviar is another name for a black bean salad. I was first introduced to this style of salad at a family get together when a family member brought something similar and I couldn't stop eating it.

I made my first batch of Texas caviar shortly after that and haven't stopped since. Whenever I can't think of what to bring to something, my husband without doubt will recommend bringing this. He is obsessed and will sit there with a bag of tortilla chips and eat tons of it.

Tortilla chips along with the Texas caviar is the way that we usually eat it but I have had the leftovers on a salad or in a tortilla with cheese and salsa- both of which are great options.
