Ingredients

For the Cowboy Caviar:

1 (15 oz.) can black beans drained and lightly rinsed

1 (15.25 oz.) can corn, drained (can substitute with 1 ¾ cups of fresh corn off the cob)

1 cup halved grape tomatoes

1 green bell pepper, diced

½ cup finely chopped red onion

¼ cup fresh lime juice

¼ cup olive oil

½ tsp salt

½ tsp ground cumin

Dash of cayenne pepper

For garnish: fresh cilantro and/or diced avocado

For Serving:

1 lb. chicken, cooked (I like to use grilled chicken, but a store-bought rotisserie chicken or oven baked chicken breasts will also work)

2 teaspoons olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Instructions

To Prepare Cowboy Caviar:
In a large bowl, toss together beans, corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, and onion. In a separate bowl, whisk together lime juice, olive oil, salt, cumin, and cayenne until completely combined. Pour dressing over the bean mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
For the Chicken:
I like to grill about 1 lb. of boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this recipe. To do so, preheat an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan to medium high heat. Rub chicken with olive oil and season with salt and pepper on all sides. Place chicken on the grill and cook for about 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
Serve grilled chicken topped with Cowboy Caviar. Garnish with fresh cilantro and sliced avocado, if desired.
