Black Bean Avocado Salsa

Black Bean Avocado Salsa

"This has to be my favorite summer salsa. It's colorful and fresh tasting. It makes a bunch, so invite some friends over. I like to take the lime after it's been juiced and rub down the bowl I will be serving the salsa in. I also rub the lime on the plastic wrap this will help keep the avocados from turning brown. Don't forget the tortilla chips!"

I put this into a warmed flour tortilla with hot Mexican chicken breast pieces. Chipotle move over! I would always get their chicken burrito with black beans, corn salsa and guacamole. This tasted just as awesome but was even better because it was fresher and cheaper. And super easy. Only change: no red wine vinegar.


This is very delicious. I use it on tostadas with shredded rotisserie chicken, in tortillas for burritos or as a dip. It is so bright, summery & flavorful. Lasts several days in the refrigerator & tastes better with time! Thanks Dawn!


This was super easy to make and really delicious. I do not like cilantro so I eliminated it, but otherwise stuck with the recipe exactly.
