What’s not to love about salsa? It’s quick and easy to make and extremely versatile. You can use it for an appetizer or serve it for dinner. And what’s more, when I serve it to my tiny humans with chips, I trick them into eating their veggies!
I threw together this corn, avocado and black bean salsa the other day and served it over chicken breasts for a healthy weeknight meal! I’m sure this variation has been done before, but this is how I did it.
Chop everything up and throw it in a bowl: tomato, corn, onion, jalepeno, garlic, cilantro, avocado, black beans, salt, pepper, cumin, lime (or lemon) juice.
Mix it to combine. Let sit for about 20-30 minutes to let the flavors mingle.
Serve and enjoy!
1 large tomato, chopped
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
2 avocados, diced
1 cup fresh, canned, or frozen corn
1 – 14 oz can black beans, rinsed
1 jalepeno, seeded (or not) and diced
1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
1 clove fresh garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1/4 cup lime juice (or you can use lemon juice, but it will be extra tart)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Let sit for about 30 minutes until the flavors mingle. Serve with chips or over chicken or fish for a healthy meal!
