Cowboy caviar

Cowboy caviar (or Texas caviar) is a simple, healthy, colorful, and delicious appetizer, salad, side-dish, or dip. Using canned beans and corn is a quicker alternative to cooking dry beans. Spend less time in the kitchen but don’t forget to prepare in advance to allow the different flavors to blend together before serving.

If you don’t have jalapeños, you can use chili powder. Lime can be replaced with a lemon. The taste will be different, but still delicious.
