This Cowboy Caviar with it’s black eyed peas and avocado chunks makes the perfect appetizer!
I’m happy to be working with Save-a-Lot to talk to you about how easy it is to throw a game day party without breaking the bank! Thank you for supporting the brands that make Wine & Glue possible.
You guys know this about me . . . I’m only in on this football thing for the food.
Give me all the game day food.
Buuuuuuuuuut, have you guys ever been hosting a party and you head to the grocery store and you get to check out and you are standing there thinking to yourself, “I can’t believe I’m spending THAT much money for a football party.” And then you sort of question all of your life choices.
So I’m totally thinking that we both need to have recipes on hand that we can make for tailgating and game day that don’t make us question all of our life choices. And the first one for sure needs to be this Cowboy Caviar. I got all of the ingredients for it at Save-A-Lot. Their produce is totally amazing, and even better, totally budget friendly. Plus they have a great selection of paper goods, perfect for a tailgating party or any party.
How amazing do those apples and strawberries look? I hate going to the store and you pick up their strawberries and they are totally rotten on the bottom and you just paid like $4 for rotten strawberries. These from Save-A-Lot were inexpensive and they were all perfect and delicious. We love putting out fruit when we have people over to watch a football game because it’s snacking for the kids that I feel really good about.
And look at how gorgeous and perfect this avocado for the Cowboy Caviar is. I made sure to buy extra so I could also make my guacamole and my avocado salsa. When you are making this dip, you want to make sure to buy an avocado that is firm so it will hold it’s shape but not so firm that it’s hard to eat and doesn’t have that avocado butteriness that makes life so good.
The other major parts of this recipe are canned black eyed peas and canned corn which makes it a super affordable recipe for a party. And it is the best combos of tastes that you could ever think of. The dressing is perfect, and everything is so fresh and delicious. It uses an apple cider vinegar that gives it this amazing tang. I can’t get enough of this recipe every single time I make it. It’s crazy addictive and crazy good.
Between now and October 9th, I am going to be giving away a $50 gift card to Save-A-Lot! Just leave me a comment below telling me your favorite budget friendly game day eats! You must be 18 or older to enter and live in the United States. Good luck!
