It's the beginning of a New Year, so let's talk HEALTHY! I made chicken tacos last week for my family & was about to open a jar of salsa & decided quickly, that I was in the mood for fresh & healthy.
I was looking for recipes & came across a few similar to the one I am about to show you. The problem was, I did not have all of the ingredients, so I just used what I had, & created a new family favorite!
Here is what you Need:
- 1 15.5 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 9 oz frozen corn, thawed
- 5 roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1 medium hass avocado, diced
- 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
- 2 limes, juice of
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp cilantro
- Sea salt to taste
Second: Add tomatoes to a large bowl. Then, add chopped green onion, & *cilantro.
Third: Add black beans, thawed corn, & diced avacodo to bowl & stir.
Almost finished: Squeeze lime juice, olive oil, & add sea salt. Stir & cool for 30 minutes before eating.
*Using a kitchen shears to cut cilantro works wonderfully!
Also, I realize some recipes will tell you to add the avocado right before you serve. I did not do that, and it still tasted & looked great! (Even the next day).
