This recipe is from my friend Jack. When I was in the military, Jack would would always bring this delicious dip to all the carry in type functions when we would get together. People raved about it! Everyone would ask what is in this? Where did you get the recipe? Can I have the recipe? Jack finally broke down and let us in on the secret to his "Texas Caviar"!

What You Need

1 Food Processor or a Good Old Fashioned knife and Cutting board

1 Can Black Eyed Peas (16 oz)

1 Can White Hominy (16 oz)

2 Medium Tomatoes

1 Medium Sized Green Pepper

1/2 of an Onion

4-6 Green Onions

2 Cloves of Garlic

5 Fresh Jalapeno Peppers

1/4 Cup of Fresh Parsley

1 Bottle of Italian Dressing (8 oz)

Salt and Pepper

Corn Chips

If you don't already have a good set of knives and a decent food processor, go ahead and invest in them now. They are well worth the money! If you do use a food processor use the pulse setting! We don't want our ingredients to turn to mush!

3 - Place chopped ingredients in a large bowl and add 8 ounces of Italian Dressing

4 - Mix Well. It's ready to eat! However, I like to let mine sit a couple hours or overnight before serving. Serve with tortilla chips or scoops.

5 - Wait for the Questions!


The hominy and the black eyed peas are the ingredients people can never figure out! If you don't have fresh parsley around just substitute it with about 1/2 TBSP of the dried variety. No fresh garlic? Throw in 1 TBSP of the jarred minced garlic. If you don't already, I recommend keeping a jar of the minced garlic in the fridge at all times! It comes in handy and it last a long time! Also, buy the 16 oz. bottle of Italian dressing. It will save you some money and you will have some left over for a salad or to use as marinade later! This is a great dish for carry ins, Super Bowl and March Madness parties, or tailgating! It costs less than $10 for all the ingredients. Enjoy!
