The best crack ever…

One of the great things about starting this blog is that people request recipes or even better, share them!
This recipe is from Tina and everyone at work can agree that this is amazing! Cowboy crack is found at nearly every work party. So easy to make!

Cowboy Crack

Cowboy Crack


1 can (11 0z.) Shoepeg Corn, drained
1 can (19 oz.) Black Beans, drained & rinsed
1 firm Avocado, chopped
2 Plum Tomatoes, chopped and seeded
1/2 Red Onion, chopped

1/4 cup Oil, use vegetable or canola… do not use olive oil!!
1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Cumin
3 tbsp Sugar (this is the secret ingredient in my opinion)
1 clove Garlic, finely chopped


1. In a large bowl, mix together corn, beans, avocado, tomatoes and onion.

3. Add the dressing to the large bowl and mix. Serve immediately or save in the fridge for later!

**When picking out the avocados, try to find one that has a dark skin and just slightly soft to the touch. It should not be squishy. Also, I would recoommend buying two avocados. One that you think is perfect and another one that might be “too firm” because there’s nothing worse than making this recipe and having a bad avocado that you can’t use.**

Enjoy! and thanks for sharing, Tina!
