Texas Caviar

Photo courtesy Taste of Home

     My husband works at a greenhouse with a small group of women. Over the years, through seeing his leftovers for lunch, they have learned that I cook. So quite often some of these nice ladies send me recipes, produce and great ideas.
     For Superbowl one year, I made this as dip for chips. It reminds me a pico de gallo with beans. It's got a nice little tang and is a quick and easy do-ahead dish.
