This was a very tasty served with baked tortilla scoops.  The whole family enjoyed it.

Serving Size: 6-8

Ingredients

  • 2 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 ears fresh corn, cooked, cooled and kernels cut off the cob
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots (you’ll need one medium shallot)
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 9 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (I like Colavita)
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest (be sure to zest limes before juicing them)

  • 2 Hass avocados, diced

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients except avocados in a large bowl and mix well. Cover and chill for a few hours or overnight. Right before serving, add avocados and mix gently, being careful not to mash avocados. Garnish with a few sprigs of freshly chopped cilantro if desired.  Serve at room temperature.
