Looking for a simple party food or something healthy to snack on this weekend? This spicy black bean and avocado salsa recipe is just the thing. It’ll definitely liven up any gathering and keep your spicy food lovers happy! I strongly believe food should taste great and look appetizing as well and nothing beats having fresh, healthy ingredients to whip up a pretty bowl of black bean salsa. Check out my cute chile pepper bowl too! I picked that up at Pier 1 Imports. They have a beautiful selection of Mexican inspired home decor.
I decided to make corn tortillas for my spicy salsa for a heartier meal but this will also go well with tortilla chips for snacking. Once you’ve had homemade tortillas you won’t want the store bought type. To make them just add masa (white corn flour), which has already been lightly flavored with lime & salt, and water. Just mix the two and roll into golf ball sized balls and flatten with a tortilla press. I purchased this one below for $10 at a local store. I then cooked tortillas in a little butter and that was all.
This spicy black bean salsa recipe is quick and easy to make and is full of great flavors everyone can enjoy. Just chop up a few ingredients and you can have yourself a spicy meal in under 15 minutes.
The red peppers and jalapenos provide a nice crunch, the avocados adds creaminess, while the black beans gives this spicy black bean and avocado salsa a great chewy texture. Also, black beans have an incredible amount of fiber to keep you full longer and promote healthy digestion. It’s a great super food to add to your diet. Try it and let me know what you think! If you want a spicier salsa, use serrano chiles or habaneros for an even hotter treat.
