This corn salsa is so fresh and packed with flavor I could eat the whole entire thing for dinner. I mean it would go perfectly on chicken, or fish but I just ate it by the spoonful occasionally with chips haha. avocado salsa

You guys know I'm all about easy recipes that take little time but are still incredibly delicious and this salsa hits it out of the park! 15 minutes start to finish, throw a few blue corn tortilla chips in there and call it a day.

There's something about avocados and lime that just hits the spot on a warm summer day. This salsa is the best of both words, it has cilantro, lime, tomato, and avocado like guacamole (my all time favorite snack) but is finely chopped instead of ground and includes black beans, corn & red pepper to spice it up a bit.

It's the perfect healthy snack that will keep you full because of the added substance in the corn, black beans and avocado.
