Whether you call it Texas Caviar, or Cowboy Caviar or, as we do, Cheating Cowboy caviar, our Cowboy Caviar is easy to make, and even easier than most because of the cheating aspect of it (and now you know why we call it Cheating Cowboy Caviar). You will note that this is also designated as a ‘quarantine recipe’, which means that all of the ingredients are shelf-stable and non-perishable!
If you can’t have potatoes we have a great potato substitute for you! What if we told you that this potato substitute was so great that you can mash it, bake it, put it in soups or stews, and that you can even make fries with it? But wait, there’s more! (Shades of Ron Popeil!) What if we told you that you can purchase it precooked and in shelf-stable cans?! (We told you there was more!) Yes, it’s yuca! Yes, it’s cassava! It’s two, two, two names for one incredible potato substitute! (In case you weren’t aware, yuca and cassava are different names for the same root vegetable.)

We love us some hash brown potatoes, and we particularly like the shelf-stable cartons of dried hashbrowns (the manufacturer has it as one word even though technically it’s two words) that you can get from Costco. You just open the top of the carton, pour in boiling water, and let it sit for 12 minutes: presto! Enough shredded raw hashed potatoes to feed a small army – if that army is 2-4 people. The carton says it makes seven servings, but c’mon, who do they think they’re kidding?
