Beans, beans, the magical fruit…No ethical issues with this “caviar!” Full of fresh, summery vegetables, this recipe makes a little less than a gallon of chip dip. Easy to make ahead of time and bring up to the cabin, or to make fireside while camping!

Watch our video making this cowboy caviar here:


  • 1 cup olive oil
  • ½ cup cider vinegar
  • 2 T Stevia
  • 1 can black soy beans, unsalted & drained
  • 1 can Adzuki beans, unsalted & drained
  • 3 ears of sweet corn, grilled
  • ½ of a red onion
  • 1 of each – yellow, red, and green bell peppers – finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, finely chopped


  1. In a bowl, mix together all beans, corn, red onion, and peppers.
  2. Pour olive oil, cider vinegar and Stevia over the vegetable mixture and stir about.
  3. Let the “caviar” marinate in the refrigerator overnight for best taste results (the longer it sits, the tastier it becomes).
  4. Drain thoroughly, and serve with unsalted, corn tortilla chips.
