Black Bean Guacamole with Corn
Classic guacamole gets a fiesta-style twist with black beans & sweet corn! Quick and easy to make.
Servings8 (1/2 cup servings)
- 3 ripe avocados
- 1 cup black beans, cooked
- 2/3 cup sweet corn, cooked
- 5 oz. grape tomatoes (about 1 cup)
- 1/3 cup red onion
- 1/3 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
- 1/4 tsp. salt (more/less to taste)
- 1 jalapeño (finely diced), 1/4 tsp. ground cumin, minced garlic, etc.
Place avocado (peeled and pitted) in a bowl and mash with fork or masher to desired consistency.
Finely dice tomatoes and onion. Chop cilantro, large stems removed. Add to bowl.
Add black beans (rinsed and drained), corn, 2 Tbsp. lime juice (more/less as desired), and salt to bowl. Gently stir to combine.
Taste and season more lime juice, cilantro, or extra salt to bring out the flavors. (I love the cumin addition.)
