Texas Caviar
A Note From feedfeed

This simple corn and black bean dip might be the easiest party app of all time. Serve it tortilla chips, and don't expect leftovers! We plated this on our favorite Room & Board platters and bowls and enjoyed this party dip outside on our Room & Board outdoor furniture.
