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.
  • Enjoy!

    This sounds great! I usually make bean salads w/ a vinegar, oil and celery seed viniagrette. I think cilantro would be a nice change of pace.

    Can't wait to try this out... Thanks for posting. :)
