Texas Caviar

So today was the start of my weekly cooking. And to start with I decided I would try a recipe that I had already eaten and knew I would enjoy. Texas Caviar. The first time that I ever tried it was when Stacy brought it over to the Kimball's. And let me just say that I am very glad that I ate it before I ever saw the recipe. This recipe was quick and very easy to make, I actually spent more time at the grocery store buying the ingredients than I spent cooking.

1 Can Black Eye Peas
1 Can Shoe Peg Corn
1 Can Black Beans
1 Small Jar Pimentos
1 can diced green chilies
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar

Drain and wash Black Eyed Peas and Black Beans.Drain Corn, Pimentos, and Chilies
Mix together in 1 bowl

Bring to boil sugar, oil, and vinegar. Once boiling, leave on stove to cool.Once cool pour over top of the beans etc.Let sit and marinate in fridge overnight. Next day, drain and serve!

So currently the Texas Caviar is sitting marinating in my fridge. I'm looking forward to trying it tomorrow. The upside in trying something that I have had before is that I will know immediately whether or not I've made it correctly. Although if it isn't right then I just fail at cooking as this was almost as easy as a grilled cheese sandwich. The down side is that I have no where to take this "dip." Daniel won't eat it. So I'm going to end up taking this everywhere with me. Who knows I may end up hating it after eating enough for a party.
