Cowboy Caviar

This is not an original recipe of mine. The fact is, there are no recipes that originate with me. I'm just a conduit, passing on those that we enjoy...

Cowboy Caviar

3/4 cup canola (or other vegetable oil)
3/4 cup white vinegar
3/4 cup sugar
black pepper
red pepper flakes
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 orange bell pepper, chopped
1 large red onion, chopped
celery, chopped
1 can (15 oz.) corn, undrained
1 can (15 oz.) black-eye peas, undrained
1 can (15 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained well

Mix oil, vinegar and sugar in saucepan. Bring to full boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add black pepper and red pepper flakes. I don't measure--I perhaps use four shakes of pepper out of our shaker, and 1/2 tsp. of the flakes. Total guess. Good luck with this.

While this is cooling, chop veggies and mix in large glass bowl. Add beans and corn. Pour over cooled vinegar/oil dressing and refrigerate for several hours before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.

That's about as "foodie" as I get, folks.
