Texas Caviar

This isn't real caviar, so don't worry!! BUT, it is a fantastic dip for good old tostitos (sometimes, I just eat it with a spoon, it's so good)! I LOVE it!

Texas Caviar-

1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed with cold water
1 can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed with cold water
1 can corn niblets (I just use normal corn)
1 jar pimentos, chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
1 cup scallion, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
1/4-1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2-3/4 cup oil (I don't always use that much)

Chop all those thing that need to be chopped and rinse your beans. Boil sugar, vinegar and oil until sugar is dissolved. Pour in onto everything else and refrigerate. You can substitute chickpeas or black beans for the black-eyed ones if you want. And white beans for the pinto.

Yes that stuff is quite tasty! I loved it! And I love that I can see mom's lime green counters in the background, it's comforting :)
