Almost Texas Caviar

This is our favorite sunday afternoon snack.
 2 cans black beans
1 can black eyed peas
1/2 onion chopped
1 red bell pepper seeded & chopped
2 large tomatoes chopped (or two handfuls grape tomatoes chopped)
1 mango peeled, pitted, & chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 avocado peeled, pitted, & chopped
2 Tbs. lime juice
3-4 Tbs. red wine vinegar
3/4-1 cup light zesty italian dressing (I use the cheapest brand at Walmart)
1-2 Tbs. sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
Mix all ingredients together and dig in with your favorite dipping chips (tostito's hint of lime tortilla chips or Juanita's tortilla chips are our favorites). You can adjust the amounts of each ingredient to your particular liking (e.g. more onion, more bell pepper, etc.) Be careful, it's addictive!!
