Homemade Tex-Mex Appetizer Recipe

So I’m onto my second recipe for Tex-Mex week with my friends over at Mantitlement

I know you might be wondering where the sugar is?! Or maybe you’re still in a carb haze over my Skillet Frachos to even care…but fear not, friends. I have a fun sweet treat coming up soon!

However, in the meantime we’re not wasting a single Tex-Mexican second with this super yum Cowboy Caviar Pizza.

Fresh Vegetable Cowboy Caviar Pizza Recipe

I don’t know who came up with the term “Cowboy Caviar” for this black bean, corn, avocado salsa stuff, but I regularly buy it at Trader Joes and while that’s good and all the homemade version is like BLAM! SO so yum. And it’s also ridiculously simple to make.

We usually eat it with tortilla chips or on a grilled chicken breast, but I thought it would be fun to mix it up and serve it Pizza-style! It was a pretty good idea…just sayin.

Cowboy Caviar Pizza ingredients

Using fresh ingredients this time of year is super easy…but you can for sure used canned diced tomatoes in a pinch, or even Ro-Tel!

How to Assemble Cowboy Caviar Pizza:

Just season it up with a little Cumin, salt pepper and the juice from one lime!

Meanwhile bake up your pizza crusts… I divided my dough into 2 equal pieces to make my pizzas smaller, but you can easily make one larger pie too!

You can use canned pizza dough, fresh pizza dough…or if you want to take a short-cut buy a prebaked crust, Naan or flatbread! It will all work great!!

I like to brush my pizza crust with a little olive oil and season it lightly with salt and pepper before spreading the Cowboy Caviar on…

I drizzled my Chipotle Cream that I used on my Frachos on top. But if you don’t like things too spicy you can use sour cream or even ranch dressing!

Slicing it into cute wedges is fun way to serve it…but squares are just as effective!

  1. We made this for dinner the Sunday after Independence Day and it was delicious! The perfect light but satisfying meal after all of the indulging we did on Saturday. Thanks for the great recipe!

    We absolutely love some TJ’s Cowboy Caviar too! This is such a great idea to make your own and then slap it on some pizza – looks so fresh and delicious. Love the idea to put it over grilled chicken too.
