Lawn chairs, screaming at the top of your lungs, good food! 

Nope, not family reunions, it's tailgate time folks! Here's a recipe for a chip-dip that I'll guarantee will leave your bowl empty, your sacred team shirt covered in dip drips, and your tailgating buddies inviting you back with a primo parking space. 

Tailgate Texas Caviar

2 cans of Bush's Black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained (I ONLY use Bush's)
1 can of Shoepeg corn
1 small can of chopped black olives
1 small purple onion, chopped (cause it makes it pretty)
1 bunch of green onions with tops, chopped
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, chopped 
6 small ripe tomatoes, chopped
1 small bottle Italian Dressing
Optional - Add a can of Rotel Tomato & Green Chilies for a kick. (Get it? Football? Kick? Hmm...tough room)

Directions:  Pay attention cause this is realllllly complex.
Mix up stuff. 
Pour Italian dressing over stuff. 
Refrigerate stuff for about 2 hours. 
Take stuff to game. 
Eat stuff with Frito Scoops. 
Burp stuff. Yell for your team. 
Repeat.
