Summer may be drawing to a close, but I still enjoy some of our favorite summer recipes. One that is a real hit at our house is Black Bean Dip. We eat it with tortilla chips, inside a pita, or just as a salad. Any which way, it’s delicious and full of fresh ingredients.
Black Bean Dip
- 2 medium avocados, peeled and diced
- Juice of one lime
- 1 can corn, drained
- 1 can black beans, drained (or two cups of cooked black beans)
- 1 medium red pepper, chopped
- 6 green onions, chopped
- 2 Tbsp fresh cilantro, minced
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp red wine vinegar
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
Stir the avocado with the lime juice, then add all over ingredients and stir well. It tastes great fresh, but it’s even better if it’s refrigerated for an hour or two first.
