Prep Time: 10 minutes
Difficulty Level: Easy
Yield: One large bowl
- 5 avocados
- 2 Jalapeño peppers, diced
- 1 Serrano chile pepper, diced
- 1 can of sweet yellow corn
- 1 can of rinsed black beans
- 1 head of cilantro, chopped fine
- 1 lime
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the avocados in half, lengthwise from the top. With a large, wide knife, take one good whack into the pit, twist and remove. Scoop the meat of the avocado from the shell and cube or slice into strips for easy mashing. Then mash the avocados. You can use a fork, a mashing utensil or two large spoons. Next, add the salt, pepper and fresh-squeezed lime juice to mashed avocados. Toss in the remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Do not mix too much or the dip will lose its chunky texture. Now dip in a tortilla chip and enjoy!
