    Just made it, did it pretty much as the recipe except, I used a jar of chunky medium heat salsa, and I used dry spices, instead of fresh, but I can only say it’s a great recipe. The fresh onion, and bell pepper were fresh, and it is a keeper party recipe!

    I make this every year for a New Year’s Day pot-luck brunch a friend hosts. There are never any leftovers from my double recipe; everyone loves it! This has become a great favorite for me and my family. We don’t use it as a dip, but just as a salad. Mmmmm.

    I made it as written and it was a big hit. Thanks for the recipe.

    Happy New Year, Elise.

    My friends had a NY’s Eve dinner party and I was asked to bring a spicy appetizer. Although I’m not a cilantro fan – all of my friends coming to the dinner party love it. Having said that – I made your Texas caviar (including the avocado) but had a hard time telling whether the dish was going to be a winner or not due to the way I feel about cilantro.

    The verdict: Winner! I was surprised and pleased that people scoffed this dip down quickly – and that it was the most popular appetizer there…and there were many choices. A good one; thank you.

    This is one of those classic recipes that I had never heard of until a couple of years ago. How is that possible? It is an amazing New World contribution to global cuisine, at the very least. The version I have settled on adds a bit of sugar, utilizes diced red onion instead of green onion, and is lighter on the jalapenos, but all in all I’m convinced that any Texas Caviar recipe would be quickly dispatched at my house. This will be my main contribution for the family New Year’s celebration this year. Long live snackies!
