Playoff Caviar

34 posts in this topic

Ok, I'm gonna toot my own horn. You've heard of Texas caviar, I assume....well, we had a big contest with a bunch of guys, including their wives and friends, five years ago, as to who could make the best "caviar". It was a big contest, and after a lot of judging and recipes, the 2 finalists were selected...me and my buddy's gourmet-cooking wife. I won. She was pissed. Hey, when yer good, yer good. It took me like 2 weeks and 5 batches to get it just right. So, as a consolation, she got to name it...and she did admit she loved it. So, here's my "Minnesota Caviar"...and she loves calling me by that name, cuz I'm an old rocker. Whatever revs yer blower........:grin:

 

Markie  Mark’s Minnesota Caviar

1 can blackeyed peas, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
½ can yellow corn (or shoepeg) drained
1 large green pepper, chopped
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 large purple onion, chopped
1 Jalepeno, seeded and chopped fine
1 10 oz can of Rotel Tomato’s with Chiles, drained
Combine veggies in large bowl, pour ½ to ¾ cup of light oil over veggies; stir. (Canola, Wesson, or Extra Virgin Olive)

Mix:
½ cup red wine vinegar
½ cup white vinegar
½ cup sugar; combine all 3 and heat until sugar dissolves, cool.
Add to vinegar mix:
½ tsp SMOKED CHIPOTLE chile pepper powder (Made by Mccormick Spices)
1 tsp salt
¾ tsp Cumin
½ tsp Cilantro
½ tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp  fresh cracked black pepper
1 tsp green tabasco sauce

Pour Vinegar mix over veggies, stir, and refrigerate 6-8 hours.
Enjoy! (With Tostito’s Scoops)

Eat within two days, though.

hahaha...  it's got like 46 ingredients for God's sake.  If I had a wheel barrow of ADHD drugs I couldn't make it.

It looks very good and the photo is outstanding.

Ya, it gets kinda sogged out, rh. Veggies soften too much. It does need to sit in the fridge overnite before ya eat it, though...that's a must. I really would be honored if you'd make it, and tell us what ya think. it IS a pain to make, but if ya line everything up like I do, and proceed down the line, it isn't too bad. It's worth it. Lotsa choppin', though.  I like to crank Segar or the Stones or Van Morrison and have it. I find it relaxing. Give it a go!

Eeew, no that looks way to healthy for a Football game.:(  A game is the only time my wife lets me eat crapp because shes not watching it. So crapp I will eat!  :)

Maybe a can of Hormel chili on top would help crapp it up a bit? :P

Making it today.  I was going to make it exactly the way it is but my wife can't stand green pepper raw so I'll just put in another red pepper or orange pepper.  Otherwise it is what it is.  I'll have it for the game tomorrow.  good luck.

awesome!  May have to make some home made chips.

Cut three at a time with scissors in pie shape.  Throw a few at a time in oil, not touching, flip after about 30 seconds.  Little salt and whamo!
