Cowboy Caviar Guacamole

Cowboy caviar combined with creamy guacamole is a quick and easy dip recipe loaded with fresh flavors. It has avocado, beans, corn, peppers, tomatoes, and fresh lime juice all mixed up and ready for a big bowl of tortilla chips to go with it.

I love a recipe mash-up and this combination is a winner. Each on their own are delicious but when you combine a classic cowboy caviar (or Texas caviar as it’s sometimes called) and guac you get a terrific twofer appetizer. Add a few friends, a few margarita spritzers, and you have the makings for a great weeknight happy hour or Saturday afternoon get-together.

Make Ahead Tips

If you want to make it ahead, mix everything except the avocado and keep it in the refrigerator up to a day in advance. Before you serve it, mash the avocado and stir it all up.

Storage Tips

Store the dip in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The lime juice will help slow down the avocado browning, but it’s best to enjoy this snack within a day or so.
