I know that there is a really good recipe out there for this... but I can't find it. So this is my own alternative recipe until I find the one that is exact. This one is still really tasty though. :)

1 finely chopped tomato
1 finely chopped onion
1 cup of fresh corn from the cob or
can of sweet corn (or shoe-peg)
1 can beans (you could use black eyed peas or pork-n-beans or whatever you like)
4 or more jalepeno's
1 can chopped or sliced olives, I didn't have sliced so I used chopped
2 tsp. garlic pwd
2 tsp. onion pwd

Mix together and put it in the fridge for an hour or longer. 
Serve with chips or as a side with your Mexican Fiesta! 


  1. This is our version:

    Mississippi Caviar

    1 pound dry black-eyed peas
    2 cups Italian-style salad dressing
    1/2 cup diced jalapeno chile pepper
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped onion
    2 ounces diced pimento peppers, drained
    1 tablespoon minced garlic
    2 cups diced green bell pepper
    1 pinch ground black pepper

    Place black-eyed peas in a large saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 90 minutes, or until black-eyed peas are tender.
    Drain black-eyed peas. Cover with Italian-style salad dressing.
    In a large bowl, mix together jalapeno, onion, pimento peppers, garlic, green bell pepper, and ground black pepper. Toss in black-eyed pea mixture. Chill in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight before serving.

    It' a lot like yours but uses italian dressing. Oh, it's soooo good.
