Cowgirl Caviar

Usually tailgate food is so heavy & greasy, and almost always deep-fried. So, when I am planning out what I am going to make for the week, I like to make something that is a little more refreshing. Cowgirl Caviar is my take on the popular dip, "Texas Caviar" or "Cowboy Caviar". Instead of using black beans & black-eyed peas, I used pinto beans because they are pink and cute, and more girly? I guess. I don't know. Either way, this dip is so easy to throw together and feeds so many people! You can honestly add any vegetable you like, that's the glory of this dip... it's simplicity. ROLL TIDE ROLL & Go Dawgs!! Enjoy :)
