Cowboy Salsa

Who couldn't use an easy tailgating/appetizer recipe? The folks at Red Gold Tomatoes were kind enough to share this one with us---Cowboy Salsa!

It starts with a can of tomatoes!

Cowboy Salsa

Servings: 10   |   Preparation Time: 20 minutes   |   Cook Time: 0 minutes

1 (15 ounce) cans black eyed peas, drained and rinsed
1 (14.5 ounce) can whole kernel corn
1 jar pimentos
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped green bell pepper
1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian salad dressing

In a large bowl combine all ingredients; stir to blend. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
Serve with crackers or chips.

Ok--I admit to changing things up, but just a tad. I subbed out the black-eyed peas for black beans. :) Actually, you could use the regular diced tomatoes and add some fresh cilantro and lime, if you were so inclined, but, why not just keep it easy--this is delicious! Seriously, just mix it all up in a bowl and let it marinate for a few hours. I promise, this will be the hit of your party.

If, by some rare chance, there are leftovers, simply tuck some into a warm tortilla for a quick lunch....

......or, if you are like me and you just love breakfast for dinner, top that tortilla with a couple of, so good!

  5. Yummy. I like the idea - tortillas with eggs..
    How do you warm up the tortillas? In Germany you can buy tortillas that should be warmed up in the microwave but the tortillas you use look much better.
    Thank you.

    1. I just moisten some paper towels, wrap them around the tortillas, and microwave them for a few seconds. Sometimes, I just warm them in a frying pan. Lately, I've been using tortillas that aren't cooked yet. They get heated for a few minutes on each side...they taste very fresh! :)

  6. I love this dish and I would definitely wrap some in a nice fluffy warm tortilla. I made a similar version not too long ago but didn't add in corn and I wish I had. I will be making this soon. Thanks!
