How to make it
- This bean dip is great to take to parties and for potlucks and summer BBQ's - its quite filling and so colorful, it pleases the eye and satisfies those tummies. And so no one will even care its super healthy. (I didn't!)
- I would also suggest to cut up avocados last and place on top of everything else then stir at last moment. It makes for a prettier arrival onto the table.
- If you want to make this last a bit, separate into two bowls, then only cut up avocado for the bowl you are about to serve, then toss.
- And lately, I have been omitting the avocado and even the tomato with excellent delicious results!
- About 5 cups are yielded with this recipe
- ****OK Here We Go****
- Take your strainer/colander and place into sink. Open up cans of beans and put into colander and rinse really well under running water. Let drain.
- Place rinsed beans into large bowl and stir.
- Add all other ingredients except for avocado.
- Stir up ingredients. Add more cilantro if you would like.
- Cut up avocado making it look pretty and place on top of stirred ingredients. Sprinkle additional lime juice on top of avocados to prevent browning.
- Cover and chill until ready to serve.
- Stir at last moment and serve with chips.
- Photo shown has missing avocado which I was about to put in.
- I also used this as filling for my quesadilla lunch today (recipe just posted)
- This would also be nice served over rice, cous cous or pasta for an extra nice cold salad making it a lovely cold meal during hot summer nights.
