Food Prep Fri-Yay! 🎉

I usually food prep on Sunday, but if I wait to post this you won’t have time to buy the ingredients for your Superbowl party… so, we improvise. 🏈

This has got to be the most versatile salad ever. Not only a great midweek meal, but also fantastic for game day. 

COWBOY CAVIAR! 😋

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans of S&W Black Beans [rinsed & drained]
  • 1 can of S&W Pinto Beans [rinsed & drained]
  • 1 can of corn [rinsed & drained]
  • 1 ½ cups of cherry tomatoes [chopped]
  • 2 bell peppers [chopped]
  • ¾ cup of [chopped] onion
  • 1 cup of [chopped] cilantro
  • 1-2 jalapeños [ribs removed, seeded and finely chopped]
  • 1 avocado [cubed]

Dressing:

  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • Juice of one lime
  • 3 cloves of garlic [chopped]
  • 1 teaspoon of salt, to taste
  • 1 tsp of cumin (or your favorite taco seasoning)
  • 1/8 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, to taste

Directions:

⓵ In a large serving bowl, mix together all the Cowboy Caviar ingredients [except for the avocado]. 

⓶ In a separate bowl, mix together all the dressing ingredients. 

⓷ Pour the dressing over the salad and let the mixture marinate for about 30 minutes.

⓸ Right before serving, add in the avocado —YUM!

Different Ways To Enjoy It:

  • On its own with a few chips.
  • On top of a green salad, as a big protein and fiber boost.
  • Healthy nachos! I slice bell peppers into scoops and arrange on a platter. Top the pepper ‘chips’ with the caviar & add a dollop of guac & salsa.

So, why do I love this recipe SO much? ❤️ Well, beans have both soluble and insoluble fiber [which can help balance blood sugar, remove bad cholesterol & help prevent heart disease]. Due to the high fiber content, you’ll stay fuller longer, meaning you can avoid the late-night grazing or mid-afternoon munchies.

Key point: I try to include beans in my diet at least 3 days per week. 💯
