Hey friends! Hope everyone had a great weekend. I can’t wait to share this black bean salsa with you today featuring Avocados from Mexico. It’s so easy to whip up and is such a yummy snack! I’m not a huge guacamole fan, but this black bean salsa I LOVE. It’s the perfect party food. Enjoy it with your favorite tortilla chips or crackers. It also tastes great over your favorite Mexican dishes.

Corn and black bean salsa


  • 1 can of sweet corn (drained)
  • 1 can of black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 3 tomatoes
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 avacados from Mexico
  • 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup onion
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 cup cilantro


  1. Combine the corn and beans into a medium sized bowl. Dice the onion, pepper, avocados and tomatoes then mix them in the bowl. Cut the cilantro and mix that in with the salt and sugar. Squeeze fresh lime juice over the top. Stir and enjoy with tortilla chips or wheat thins.

To make this a meal… grab a wheat tortilla, put a few spoonfuls of salsa in and roll it up. This makes a quick and easy lunch!


So just curious… what your favorite avocado recipe?

    This looks amazing! I can’t wait to try it. Does it keep at all, or do you need to eat it all right away?

    Food is for all time occasion and seemingly the most important dwellings that every mom should have for her family. food doesn’t need to be just healthy but also it must come with a great taste to satisfy our kids with it. Ever since I started working on this new sheet I often get to see a post that promote food for certain occasion which i think work on my convenient as mommy. I usually spend half of my days time so, cooking would always be my turn every meal time.:)
