This is a modified recipe for a delicious, healthy snack. Why modified? Because sometimes your 6 month old fights every nap of the day and right as the sun is setting and you try to head out to the store for supplies, she finally falls asleep. #mamadrama. So we modify.

I'll provide the full recipe so you can truly taste the classy, taste bud bursting experience known as cowboy caviar.

cowboy caviar recipe

1 cup cooked organic bean mix 
(follow directions on how to cook... it's typically an all day process. you can also use canned beans. just drain them first. i recommend black beans, black eyed peas, white beans and kidney beans)

1 package frozen sweet corn thawed

1 cup diced celery

1 cup diced red pepper

1 cup diced yellow pepper

1 jalapeno diced

1 tablespoon minced garlic

1 handful chopped cilantro

1/2 cup rice vinegar

1/3 cup white sugar

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon salt

Start by slicing, draining and dicing your veggies and beans. Put together in bowl and place aside.

Next bring the rice vinegar, olive oil, sugar and salt to a boil in a saucepan over low to medium heat. Cook until the sugar is completely dissolved. Let cool for 5 minutes and poor over the bean mixture. Cover and throw it in the fridge for at least an hour. 

When ready to serve, drain the liquid a bit (not completely because it's so tasty you won't want to lose it all) and serve with your favorite chip!

Easy peasy. Even a mom juggling a cray baby can do it!
