Salsa Recipe

The word easy in the kitchen is always a welcome word. These extra ingredients black beans and avocado make this a healthy and delicious snack. This salsa recipe is good for dipping with chips and veggies, and can also add a tasty addition to pork, chicken and fish. You may want to try pouring some homemade salsa over scrambled eggs.

I was enjoying a lunch in a Mexican restaurant in Southern California, and as the salsa was being served I notice it came with black beans and chopped avocado, which I thought was a bit unusual. I ate the whole bowl of salsa, well I was hungry after a long bike ride but it was so delicious. As always I improvise and make up many different recipes, so I decided to try these ingredients with my own touches for this salsa recipe.
