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.

Ingredients

  • 5 avocados (diced)
  • 3 scallions (chopped)
  • 2 limes (juiced)
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 15-ounce can black beans (drained and rinsed)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe.

  2. Place avocados, scallions and lime juice into a large bowl. Mash avocados to a coarse puree.

  3. Stir in tomatoes, cilantro, and beans.

  4. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with assorted dippers such as toasted whole wheat pita bread triangles or multi-grain tortilla chips.
