Black Bean and Avocado Salsa

My future brother and sister-in-law, Jen and Vince, make a version of this recipe often, and it is so good that I had to make it today! I didn't have all of the ingredients that they usually put into the mix, but it still turned out great! In fact, it turned out so good, that these pictures show literally the last bit of salsa left from the bowl!


Black Bean and Avocado Salsa

1/2 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 ear of fresh corn kernels
1 medium tomato, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
1 avocado, chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
1/4 cup, or less, of red onion, diced
 juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp cumin (don't be afraid of this spice - it makes this salsa awesome)
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and enjoy with tortilla chips. It is also a great salad-topper or taco-topper too! 

I'm so glad that Jen and Vince brought this delicious salsa into my life!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Look how much I love it - I have crazy eyes!  Also, don't you love my wood-veneer cabinets? So chic!
