try this....

i went to a party a couple weeks ago; after devouring an entire bowl of this bean stuff i called my friend for the recipe. trust me you want it.

try it this week, you won't be disappointed! the recipe makes up a lot so you may want to half it although it does keep for a few days.

the sauce:
1/3 C lime juice
1/2 C olive oil (i use a little less)
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1/8 cyan pepper

*mix and set aside

the goods:
2 avocados diced (i do 3 because i love them)
2 cans black beans (drain and rinse)
1 1/2- 2 C frozen corn (i just rinse mine off and let it thaw for a couple of minutes)
1/2 red pepper diced
2 tomatoes diced
6 green onions sliced
1/2 C cilantro (a little more or a little less depending on how much you like it)

*mix it all together and serve.

the first time i ate it we had it with tortilla chips, i've seen it put on top of hamburgers.

and ian and i marinated some shrimp se in baja chipotle sauce and then warmed it up on the stove and put this stuff on top for shrimp tacos.

tell me what you think.
