Cousin Jessy's Black Bean Salsa
Sunday, October 10, 2010

I don't think my cousin invented this salsa. But I got the recipe from her, so in my house, it's called

"Cousin Jessy's Black Bean Salsa."  

It's gooooood.

Gather ingredients:

Yum.


Dice onion and tomatoes.  I just learned how to dice an onion.  For the 2 of you reading who don't already know how, here's a lesson.

Aren't purple onions pretty?






Mix together all ingredients except avocados, and put in fridge to chill.  Dice avocados immediately before serving and add to salsa. 

So.  I'm obviously not a food photographer.  It tastes better than this picture looks.




 Serve with tortilla chips and enjoy!  Take this to your next football party.  Your friends will love you!

Do I see a candle? Don't know why, but the candle in the picture cracks me up!! :-)

Yes. The candle is not an ingredient. Don't be confused. :-)
