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.
