Texas Caviar... So many veggies, it has to be good!

This is my absolute favorite dish, which came from a coworker of my mom. Funnily enough, the base of the entire dish is a bunch of bell peppers, which I never really liked. However, this recipe is so amazing, that I can eat an entire batch by myself!

Cook Time

Prep time: 30 min
Ready in: 30 min
Yields: ~48 Tablespoon servings


  • 3 bell peppers, any color, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped Jalepeno
  • 2 15.8 oz cans black eyed peas, drained
  • 1 Teaspoon (or more, to taste) minced garlic
  • 1 bunch greed onions, sliced
  • 8 oz Zesty Italian dressing, (may need less/more depending on tastes)
  • 1-2 bags Frito's scoops


  1. Chop, slice, and mince the bell peppers, JalapeƱo, garlic, and green onions. Place all in serving bowl.
  2. Drain and rinse peas. Add to bowl as well.
  3. Add about 2/3 of the salad dressing. Mix together, and, for best results, refrigerate for at least 4 hours. If, after the 4 hours, the mix is too dry, add the remainder of the dressing. The wait time can also be skipped, but it is recommended for the best mixing of flavors.
  4. Serve with Frito Scoops, and enjoy!
