This black bean salsa with avocado recipe is one of my favorite party dishes. It’s completely addicting and has so much amazing flavor to satisfy. An added bonus? It is easy to make, healthy, and a guaranteed hit with whoever you may be entertaining. The Fiesta Flats are the perfect crunchy shell to keep each serving nicely contained and easy to pick up. I also like having a second option of clear plastic cups available just in case the guest prefers tortilla chips with Black Bean Avocado Salsa; they are also an easy grab and go snack while mingling.
Impress your guests with this black bean salsa recipe served in fiesta flats!
Tip: Rub the bowl with lime juice prior to mixing all your ingredients to help prevent the avocado from browning. In addition you can rub the plastic wrap with lime before putting it right on top of salsa. If you have guests that enjoy cheesy dishes we totally recommend serving this with our Black Bean Cheese Dip!
