We love black beans and salsa so this sounded like it’d be a winner. We went over to a friend’s house to swim and visit so what a great opportunity to make something new! This was great! We ate it as an appetizer with chips but it could just as easily be a side dish to a meal. It made a lot and yes, we ate nearly all of it. We can be piggies when something is good and this fit the bill.
I didn’t make any changes. It was easy to make it just took a bit longer than expected because of all the chopping. Oh, we let it marinade overnight. I would say that the avocados and tomatoes at the end are optional. Yes, they are good in it but it was just as good without them too.
