Serve with tortilla chips!

Another recipe illustration, this one for "Cowboy Caviar," which is kind of a salsa, made with corn and black-eyed peas, tomatoes and avocado (and a bunch of other stuff), and seasoned with vinegar, oil, garlic, and hot sauce. I wanted to include something "cowboy" in the drawing, so for this one I put it in the title of the hot sauce. (There actually IS a hot sauce out there called Caliente Cowboy, by F. McClintock's, but the packaging was way too complicated for me to reproduce, so I just made this up.)

This is probably a redo; I chose to use the paper vertically, and ran out of room in this rather horizontal layout. Also, there are parts I like a lot, and parts with which I'm not happy. But I think I'll move on to something else for now, and try this again in a couple of days. If I do the same thing over again right in a row, I tend to get impatient/discouraged/burnt out more quickly. For the next one, I want to try adding a visual (instead of just a title) for the "cowboy" part--we'll see!
