Mimi’s Cowboy Caviar

20180501_090742This bean dish is a favorite at family gatherings. My mother-in-law introduced it to me years ago and I was instantly hooked . Serve it over a bowl of romaine lettuce for a quick healthy lunch or scoop with chips for a festive appetizer. How ever you eat it, you will be left craving for more!

This recipe was actually pretty hard to document the measurements. It really is a dump and serve type of dish. Feel free to adjust to your liking!
