Need an easy appetizer?

Tis the season for holiday parties, and  I feel like many times I’m scrambling to pull together a last minute appetizer to bring.  But this dip is always quick and easy (of course) and I don’t actually have to do any cooking which is a plus. Oh and it is delicious, and kind of pretty too!

Here is what you need:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1-2 cans black beans
  • roasted corn (Trader Joe’s has it in the freezer section)
  • 1 medium purple onion (or I used about 1/2 pack of Trader Joe’s onion, shallot and garlic mixture)
  • 2-3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro (I love cilantro so used a really large handful’s worth)
  • 2 tbsp EVOO
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp celtic salt
  • jalapeno (optional)

Mix everything together. Then be sure to allow your dip to sit in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, grab a bag of non-GMO blue corn tortilla chip, and you’re good to go!

Oh, and if you need a quick dinner for the kiddos before the sitter comes, just cook up some some grass fed ground beef with salt, pepper and garlic.  Then throw the meat in a bowl, topped it with this dip, add a few chips, and everyone is happy.

Have fun this holiday season and be safe!
