As far as Mexican food goes, our family pretty much loves it all. Almost every week we have at least one Mexican-inspired meal, like fish tacos, chicken fajitas or enchiladas for dinner, tortilla soup or taco salad for lunch or even breakfast burritos (our most recent dinner favourite are these delicious Mexican-Style Quinoa Stuffed Peppers!). And the best way to eat homemade Mexican food is topped with this fresh and healthy Corn, Avocado and Black Bean Salsa! It features corn, the #FoodieMamas ingredient of the month, along with fresh avocado, tomato and lime. It’s great as an appetizer or snack with some corn tortilla chips, but it’s also the perfect condiment to any Mexican main dish or salad. I think you’re going to love it!
1 cup corn (fresh cooked or frozen)
1/3 cup finely diced red onion
1 large tomato, finely diced
1/3 cup black beans (canned)
1 avocado, chopped
1-2 tbsp chopped cilantro (to taste)
juice of 1 lime
a pinch or two of sea salt
Add the corn, avocado, tomato, black beans, and red onion to a large bowl.
Squeeze the lime juice over everything and sprinkle in the salt. Toss everything together really well and as you’re tossing add the chopped cilantro.
Serve with corn tortilla chips for dipping, or serve alongside a main dish as a condiment (it’s perfect with any kind of soft tacos, fajitas, or even on salad with grilled meat or fish)!
Because there’s only 9 Weight Watchers PointsPlus in the entire recipe, one serving is about 2 Weight Watchers PointsPlus which makes it a great addition to your healthy Mexican menu.
