This is one of those super healthy, veggie power packed treats that is great for an potluck or party. Texas Caviar lets you “eat the rainbow” and indulge in a serious protein punch as well with all the beans. We have to leave out the bell peppers because I have a food allergy but it really does add a little kick.
