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.
- 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
Make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe.
Place avocados, scallions and lime juice into a large bowl. Mash avocados to a coarse puree.
Stir in tomatoes, cilantro, and beans.
Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately with assorted dippers such as toasted whole wheat pita bread triangles or multi-grain tortilla chips.
