Cowboy Caviar

This recipe comes from from my good friend Sandy. I had this at my Writers Retreat over the weekend and had to recreate it at home. It’s packed with protein and fiber. It’s a great side dish but I ate it as a snack with some Chip’ins for most of of the weekend. YUM!!  I will make its again!
