A delicious appetizer. I think it makes a great, summer treat.


1 (11 oz) can corn, drained & rinsed

1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained & rinsed

2 large tomatoes, diced or 1 (10 oz) can tomatoes, with juice

2 ripe avocados, diced (add just before serving)

¼ cup red onion, chopped


2Tbsps. Lime juice

2 Tbsps. olive oil

2 Tbsps. red wine vinegar

2 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. cumin

1/4 cup cilantro, chopped finely

a few dashes of tabasco (optional)


Combine all ingredients, adding avocados last, and toss gently. Serve with Tortilla Scoops.


I love this treat! I don’t put the cilantro in because I don’t like it, or the tabasco, since I don’t really want a spicy snack. But, the option is there for those who like it.

Our Home Rating? 5/5 bites
