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!

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
