Can’t Stop Eating This Bean Dip

Bean dip on a cucumber chip

The first time I had this bean dip, I was at work. My friend Whitney brought it with a bag of corn chips. I couldn’t stay out of it and when the chips were gone, I was eating it out of a paper cup with a spoon. It is possible that it is mildly addictive.

Whitney is not a vegan. She did not bring it to accommodate vegans. She brought it because it is good. This is a great example of all the wonderful vegan friendly foods that you can easily bring to a party or gathering. Everyone can enjoy it. You know there is something you can eat and share and it might be an opening for discussing your choice to be a vegan in a very nonthreatening and delicious way.

We have made it several times and found that having it on hand to add to salads, have on a big bed of greens or eat as a side dish with lunch is really great too.

Delicious bean dip that everyone will love, whether vegan, paleo, or whatever. It is a wonderful Go-To item for that vegan dish you want to bring to a gathering. You could eat only this and be perfectly happy.


Units Scale
  • 3/4 cup sugar or 1/2 cup agave syrup
  • 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 lrg can black beans (or 2 15oz cans)
  • 1 15 oz can black-eyed peas
  • 1 can shopeg corn
  • 2 ribs celery, finely diced
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 small jar roasted red peppers, drained and finely diced


  1. Heat vinegar with sugar until dissolved.
  2. Rinse and drain beans and peas.
  3. Mix everything together and let flavors meld together for several hours or overnight.
  4. Serve and enjoy!


By the way: Shopeg corn was something I never even heard of before making this. It is worth finding in the canned vegetable aisle.

We like scooping it up on cucumber slices (see the photo) but chips are just fine too. It also pairs well with salad greens for a hearty salad.

Our awesome friends at My Wife Makes also used this dip in a wrap which we think is a fantastic idea! So, have fun and use your imagination!

    1. Hi Carole,

      Oh, absolutely! We just made it this week (twice!) and avocado is exactly what we used, since we didn’t have any sunflower oil in the house, and it was wonderful.
      Go for it!

  1. This sounds a lot like Texas Caviar except for the dressing. I always add sweet peas to mine. can’t wait to try this. So excited to see your you tube channel and your website. Nice to know other people closer to my age that are on this journey. Thanks for taking your time and energy to do this. It really does mean a lot !

    1. Hi Sue!
      Texas Caviar? Now that is something that we have not heard of. Is that something that you make?
      Thank you for your kind comments – helping people on the journey is the whole reason we are sharing what we do, and there are lots and lots of wonderful young people with blogs and youtube channels, but, as you say, it’s nice to have people who can relate to where you are in life. 🙂
      Looking forward to hearing more from you, thanks for sharing!
      Greg and Georgia

    1. Hi Olga – that’s a good point and we have discussed that, actually. LOL. We are ever grateful for people weighing in on what to call this. Is it a dip, salsa, condiment, or salad? Perhaps it is all? Either way it is going to be tasty with that recipe. 🙂 Thanks for coming by and being in touch. Let us know how it tastes.

  2. My family is in love with this dip as well (although we keep trying to figure out something else to call besides a dip or salsa; neither seem right). I’ve been making it for about year. I also add a can of chickpeas to the mix–just makes more!

    1. LOL, I know what you mean! It stumped me too. Please let me know if you think of something that better suits it.

      1. I have heard this called Cowboy Caviar, and Redneck Caviar. I like the name Cowboy Caviar! Thanks for the recipe!

  3. Hey hey hey Georgia and Greg!!!!!!!
