Texas Caviar with Avocado
This was super easy and really good! I didn't even know I liked black eyed peas. I would recommend less dressing; I will try 3/4 c. next time. I used 3 California avocadoes and it was still a little bit too much liquid. (I will also look for a healthier dressing alternative as the oil is the only un-healthy part of this recipe). I used a can of diced green chilies instead of jalapenos, only because it was cheaper and easier. I added a dash of lemon juice to keep the avocado from turning. I got busy during the party and actually forgot to put this out. Much to my surprise, it kept really well overnight and was delicious the next day. Of course it is delicious with Fritos Scoops, but it is also great with whole grain crackers.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo
Excellent, easy recipe for the arroz con pollo novice. I made this recipe for my husband's office and most of his co-workers are from Cuba. They came back for seconds.
