Black Bean, Corn, & Avocado Salsa.

It's salsa season!! Time to eat salsa and time to make salsa!

I did both this weekend! Right now my first batch of the season (recipe to be shared soon) is in processing in a hot water bath. My kitchen smells good, but it's hot in here!

I always wonder what I am going to do with all that salsa. Gary doesn't eat it and I can only eat so much. Well, it's mostly that I only allow myself to eat so much. If only those corn chips didn't have to have fat and calories!!

My Aunt Janet first introduced me to this tasty way to put a twist on plain salsa.
Black Bean - Corn - and - Avocado Salsa
2 pints of your favorite homemade or store-bought salsa
2 avocados (peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks)
1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 cups frozen corn
you could also add cilantro and/or garlic

Combine ingredients, cover, and refridgerate several hours. Serve with chips!

This is one of my favorites and is definitely addicting. :) I'm thinking about trying it with some form of chicken... maybe a wrap or something...

There's just something about black beans and corn in salsa that just pulls me in. So yummy! Never had it with avocado also, though. Sounds like a great addition.
