Trader Joe's: A grocery store. A culture. A DESTINATION. I don't work for TJ's, I am simply a customer who loves the store, the products, & the experience.
This blog was a year-long project. In 2015 I reviewed 1 TJ's product EVERY SINGLE DAY. I visited lots of TJ's stores around the country, and when the year ended I couldn't stop. I still post often (though not daily) & I welcome your comments on the products & reviews.

Day 52 - Cowboy Caviar
So Cowboy Caviar found its way into our home via a
recipe. Somewhere, at some point, I read
a recipe for a Trader Joe’s dinner that required COWBOY CAVIAR. So I picked up a jar. And never ever saw the recipe again. Months later, maybe over a year later, I found
said jar of Cowboy Caviar in our cupboard.
Normally I am a strict “Consume before the “best by” date” kind of gal. But something about this product made me
think, “What the heck, give it a try, what’s it gonna do, kill ya??”.
Cute name for corn salsa
So basically, Cowboy Caviar is CORN SALSA. It is corn, peppers, black beans, and spices
in a jar. It is fine.
I mean, I guess I am not a huge fan of corn salsa, and I am sure if this
was fresher it would have been better. I
give cowboys the benefit of the doubt! J I think it would go well in a tortilla or even
on scrambled eggs.
Pretty good price
Perhaps this IS what cowboys call caviar!
I am going to try it again sometime. And not leave it in the cupboard for so
