Classic guacamole with a fun, fiesta twist! Made with hearty black beans, tomatoes, and cumin. (Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free)
Grab the chips and get your taste buds ready for a fiesta! Guacamole is one of the most basic recipes – all it really takes is avocado and salt. But it’s fun to jazz it up sometimes. Black beans are an awesome addition for extra “oomph” in this fiesta guacamole, and you can also play around with your other favorite ingredients and spices.
In addition, you can also try sweet corn, garlic, bell pepper, jalapeno or cayenne for some heat. For this version, I also opted for one of my personal favorite spices (cumin!) for a punch of flavor. I’d love to hear what variations you come up with! (For more easy Mexican-style sides, we also love this Fresh Pico de Gallo, and blender-made Restaurant-Style Salsa.)
