RECIPE: Sweet Bean Salad with Fritos Scoops

This is a go-to recipe that I make frequently to take to parties. People ALWAYS ask for the recipe, because it's fantastic--and it tastes so much different than it looks. It's surprisingly sweet (which is thanks to the oil and sugar dressing) and serving it with Fritos Scoops is a must ;)

I have never known what to call this (my mom got the recipe a long time ago, and we've always just called it "that good bean dip"). So, call it what you will. Hopefully more creative than "that good bean dip"!


1 cup celery, chopped fine
1 green bell pepper, chopped fine
1 cup green onions, thinly sliced
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
1 (14 oz) can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 (14 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 (14 oz) can white corn, drained
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil

Combine all in a bowl and serve with Fritos Scoops! 


  1. I love this stuff! We call it "Texas Caviar" and eat it with tortilla chips, but I'm going to try Scoops next time!

  2. Hi - I use this recipe too. My friend, who gave it to me called it "Cowboy Caviar." It is delicious. We just had some last weekend.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
