    I added just a touch of sugar (about a teaspoon) to take the sharp edge off. One serving is about 3 ounces, which fills about seven baked tortilla scoops. Baked scoops are 10 calories each, so one scoop FULL of cowboy caviar is only 20 calories! - 11/25/07

    This is a great recipe! I made it for a bbq and I got a ton of comments on how good it is. The second time I made it I put all the ingredients together except for the avocado and stored it in the fridge over night so all the flavors melded together. Add avocado right before serving. Thanks Janae! - 6/22/07

    I LOVE this recipe!! Colorful and flavorful and a unanimous hit. I add a couple diced peppers for spice as it's otherwise pretty mild, & omit the oil & add extra lime juice. Also good on hot dogs, salads, etc... omit the avocado and it will keep longer, but you're missing a whole layer of flavor! :) - 6/5/07

    You definitely don't need the oil...I'm from Texas- so adding the cumin, garlic & pepper was great--to keep it kid friendly...I didn't add jalapeno pepper- BUT you could! DELISH - 7/17/09

    The olive oil isn't necessary and neither is the vinegar with the addition of more lime juice and I added cumin to kick it up a notch. My most requested recipe! And the baked Scoops are essential for parties. - 5/27/08
