Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad)

Texas Caviar (Bean & Corn Salsa or Salad) by Salad Foodie

If I need black-eyed peas for good luck on New Year's day, I prefer to get them in Texas Caviar....a.k.a. Cowboy Caviar.....a.k.a. Southern Caviar...a.k.a. Bean and Corn Salsa. There's as many names for this as there are variations. This makes 8 cups and serves a huge hungry crowd - think Super Bowl Sunday. It also keeps well.…

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans

Texas Chuck Wagon Pinto Beans by Amos Miller

This dish is all about FLAVOR. San Antonio and Ft. Worth are my two favorite places to be when in Texas. This recipe was inspired by some dining experiences there and, to my palate, is as Texas as bluebonnets in Spring. Sweet and spicy, richly textured, these beans cry out for anything BBQ'd, grilled or broiled. Corn on the cob,…

Homemade Refried Beans

Homemade Refried Beans by John Spottiswood

I'm ashamed to say that though I LOVE refried beans, this is the first time I've ever made them myself. It's just so easy to buy them in a can, or at a mexican restaurant, that I haven't bothered. But this recipe is simple and it is definitely worth the effort in my mind. I figure my kids are the true test, since they aren't that…

Cilantro Lime Taco Soup by Robyn Medlin

Well, I may be “Grill Girl” but I still use my stove top from time to time just to make sure I remember how.

Here’s a little secret you don’t have to tell your…

Full Of Beans! A Great Barbecue Side Dish. by kathy gori

Beans. What can I say about beans? That they're delicious, economical, easy to prepare, store well for Armageddon and are super tasty??? Yes, they're all that and a bag of kale. In fact they go great with kale, but that's another issue. Beans are nutritious, high in fiber and a great source of protein. Which brings me back to…

It's great on it's own but its also wonderful with fish tacos or as a salsa with corn chips... great over eggs or in an omelet. Cook time refers to…
