Cowboy caviar has also been sometimes referred to as Texas caviar even if it wasn’t invented by a Texan. That fact of misrepresentation aside, it is truly a great dish. There are countless benefits to this dish. First of all, it is extremely versatile and could be used to complement any dish or even served on its own. Secondly, it’s very fast to prepare.
All you have to do is cut up all the ingredients and then mix them together in a container of your choice then serve it up. The last but not least benefit of cowboy caviar that we’re going to mention in this intro is the fact that you can prepare it year-round due to the availability of canned ingredients all throughout the year.
Now that we’ve covered why cowboy caviar is such a great dish, let’s get to the reason you’re reading this article — instructions on how to prepare it.
Without a doubt, the best way to prepare cowboy caviar is fresh. Now, when we say fresh, we don’t mean freshly prepared — that should be obvious seeing as your house guests wouldn’t appreciate you serving week-old cowboy caviar during dinner — but we’re referring to the actual freshness of the ingredients that you use.
Obviously, you can’t get fresh ingredients year-round, but you should try to prepare this dish as often as you can during that glorious window in which all the ingredients are in season. You’ll find that the taste drastically improves when you use fresh corn and black beans as opposed to the canned varieties. It’s almost like this form of preparation reconnects you to the nature that you were birthed from.
You could even farm the ingredients yourself if you have a garden to bring costs down and also give you some bragging rights with your pals.
