Everything that could possibly serve as a base for a southwestern dip: tomatoes, black bean, corn, or avocado, end up going into this healthy and flavor packed dip. It’s perfect on tortilla chips but for those of you that can have cheese, I can’t even begin to imagine how awesome it would be in a quesadilla!
Read on for the recipe and nutrition facts!
- 3 ears of corn
- 1/4 cup diced red onion
- 3 roma tomatoes, seeds removed and diced
- 1 avocado, cut into 1/4 inch cubes
- 1- 15oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs rice vinegar
- juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
Blanch the corn on the cob by boiling 2 inches of water in a wide bottomed sauce pan. Cook the corn 4 min on each side. Rinse with cool water and let cool until you can cut the corn off the cob. I like to cut the cob in half, set the cob on the cut end, so it is stable, and then use a small paring knife to cut down the cob.
Combine all ingredients through black beans.
In a small bowl mix remaining ingredients until olive oil is combined into the lime juice and vinegar.
Mix vinaigrette and veggie/bean mix. Serve up fresh!
