hide this one from the kids...

 This is my favorite salsa.  hands down.  I made if for a Relief Society meeting, and had to keep myself from eating the entire bowl myself.  It has the perfect combination of sweet, with a little kick.  Plus it calls for cilantro and avocado.  Can't go wrong there.  

I split the leftovers I had with my friend Ashley.  We both sat in our houses that night with firm grips on our tupperware bowls devouring that salsa like ravaging beasts, while we texted each other about how full we were but just couldn't. stop. eating.

Serve it with some hint of lime chips and it's pure heaven. 

I doubled the recipe

Avocado Black Bean Salsa

Combine the folllowing ingredients in order:
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 large can diced tomatoes, drained
1 can white shoepeg corn, drained (green giant brand)
1/2 red onion finely chopped
1 bunch fresh cilantro finely chopped
Juice from 2-3 limes
4-5 ripe avocados diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 package Good Seasons Italian Dressing made according to the package directions
1/2 cup sugar

Serve with Lime or Jalepeno flavor tortilla chips


  1. This looks delicious! I am absolutely bookmarking the recipe!

  2. We just made this last night! We call it cowboy caviar...sooooooo delicious!

  3. I got this recipe from you after Bradley's 1st b-day party, and I make it all.the.time. We LOVE it! In fact, I just made it this last weekend for a baby shower I threw for one of my friends! It is a favorite for everyone who tastes it, and I always have to pass the recipe on to everyone who tries it! :)

  4. I have a recipe very similar to this one that receives rave reviews whenever I make it. I'll have to give yours a try and then do a taste off. :)
    Hide it from the hubby too!

  5. Looks delicious! Will try it out for our next BBQ.


  6. Ha! In Alabama this is called "redneck caviar". The only difference is it is made with black eye peas instead of black beans!

  7. I had my first taste of this in Houston. They call it Texas Caviar. love it!

  8. That's impossible, its no need to hide because if i have so delicious things maybe i cannot help just eat all of them in a seconds! It's really good looking just like brown motorcycle leather jacket!
