black bean confetti

I am crazy for all the ingredients in this Tex-Mex bowl of yumminess.

Also, all the colors make me happy.

Every once in a while my friend Rhonda and I cater an event for someone.  Mostly we do it because we love cooking together so much.

We recently made two huge bowls of this black bean confetti dip for a big family reunion.

It was a big hit.

This recipe can be made ahead of time if you just leave the avocados out until the last minute.

Grab a bag of tortilla chips and take this confetti dip to your next summer gathering. Labor Day maybe?

Black Bean Confetti

1 bunch cilantro, chopped

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 cans black beans, drained

1 can white corn, drained

1 cup chopped red onion

1 jalepeno pepper, seeded and chopped (you can add more if you want it hotter)

1/3 cup lime juice

1 teaspoon cumin

2 diced avocados

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

Toss all ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips.

Enjoy!
