Cowboy Caviar with Maca

Cowboy Caviar with Maca

A big thank you to Kelly, one of our loyal customers, for sharing this tasty and flexible recipe.  It's an excellent way to get maca into your daily diet. 

  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained
  • 1 can (15 oz) navy beans (or any small white bean), drained
  • 1 bag (12 oz) frozen sweet corn
  • 5 roma tomatoes, seeds and pulp removed, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeds removed, choppedCowboy Caviar Maca Recipe
  • 1 red/orange/yellow bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeds removed, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped (optional)

Combine all above in a large bowl.

In a small bowl combine dressing ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 Tbsp jalapeño hot sauce (if desired)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

Pour over the other ingredients and toss/stir until combined. Store in refrigerator.

The recipe is very flexible: Can't eat tomatoes? substitute cucumbers! Don't like beans? Leave them out! Got an extra tomato, or some extra peas? Throw them in!

I eat 1-2 cups in the morning; I add my maca powder to my portion, and stir it until combined in the dressing and the tomato juices.  I like stirring in the maca powder last minute so that I can eat as much or as little as I care to eat that day, but still get my full amount of maca - and so that others in my family can eat it without eating my maca!

We hope that you enjoy this creative recipe.  Please see our main Maca Recipes page for more inspiration.  And if you have a recipe of your own to share let us know.
