This was originally going to be an avocado tomato salsa. But with corn and black beans on hand I thought they would be a great addition to this salsa. I had to use frozen corn because fresh corn is sadly not in season. Take this salad a step further and grill the corn in the summer time. The sweet corn and the tart lime juice go great together. Fresh cilantro and red onion are also added. Everything gets tossed together in one bowl making for an easy clean up.

This salsa is not overly spicy by any means. Just a little kick. You can add the seeds of the jalapeno if you are looking for a spicier salsa.

I served this Avocado Corn and Black Bean Salsa with my homemade tortilla chips.

This salsa is very addicting. I like to double the batch to have a ton on hand for parties. It’s perfect for entertaining.

Wash it all down with my homemade margaritas or mint mojitos.
