Cowboy Caviar

Call it what you will... Cowboy Caviar, Spicy Bean Salsa... doesn't matter! I call it DELICIOUS! This is one of those fabulous recipes you can add to tacos or just eat it by itself with chips! Not gonna lie... I've sat down and polished off an entire bowl of this myself. #truth 
When I'm making this the night before a party I will usually use canned beans but whenever I can, I use soaked beans from my pantry. 

ZERO WASTE TIP: Use 2 cups soaked beans and peas instead of buying them canned.
