Avocados are one of my favorite foods, and this means that of course, homemade guacamole is one of my favorite dishes! There's really no point at all in purchasing store-bought guacamole, since it's never even remotely as tasty as making it fresh. Seriously. Don't even bother. And why would you, when guacamole can be made so easily with just a few simple ingredients at home?

In this easy recipe, avocado pairs with black beans and traditional guacamole ingredients for a rich and textured black bean avocado dip. Serve with chips, or use to top Mexican burritos, tacos or even for a guacamole veggie burger! Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free.

Created for BUSH’S ® Beans by Connie Guttersen, R.D., Ph.D., nutrition instructor at The Culinary Institute of America, mom and author of "The Sonoma Diet". This guacamole recipe is naturally gluten-free.
