With black beans, avocados, corn, peppers and cilantro, this family bean dip has lots of flavor and texture. This dip came about when I was experimenting with a similar recipe one day.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium ripe avocados, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 can (15-1/4 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 6 green onions, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Tortilla chips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine avocados and lime juice; let stand for 10 minutes. In another large bowl, combine the corn, beans, red pepper, onions, cilantro and garlic.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar, salt and pepper. Drizzle over corn mixture; toss to coat. Gently fold in the avocado mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until chilled. Serve with tortilla chips.
