Cowboy Caviar

“Black beans are a cowboy's caviar.” I agree with that comment. Add the freshness of lime juice with plenty of heat and you've got a winner for sure. This is my version of Cowboy Caviar. Serve it with tortilla chips, crackers or raw veggies.


  • 2 (15 oz.) cans black beans, drained and thoroughly rinsed with cold water
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro (or parsley)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 3 strips bacon, cooked until crisp then crumbled
  • 2 Tblsp. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients in a food processor or blender, Blend until smooth. Cover and refrigerate for about 1 hour and all the flavors will come alive.



  1. I do love black beans and will try your recipe soon.
