Black Bean Guacamole
Sneaking some extra fiber and protein into a traditional Mexican guacamole makes this dip a more nutritious appetizer.
INGREDIENTS | YIELDS 2 CUPS
- 1 15-ounce can black beans
- 3 avocados, pitted
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 3 scallions, chopped
- 1 large tomato, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- ½ teaspoon chili powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the beans in a medium-sized bowl just until they are halfway mashed, leaving some texture.
Combine all the remaining ingredients, and mash together until mixed.
Adjust seasonings to taste.
Allow to sit for at least 10 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to set.
Gently mix again just before serving.
