First, let me say that I'm sorry that I don't have a new photo to go with this post.
I needed to bring a dish to my step-sister's baby shower. I knew that it was a barbecue and that I wouldn't eat most of the foods that were being offered, so I wanted to bring something that was a little heartier than just chips and salsa or guacamole. I also know that I'm often fairly disorganized when getting ready to go out on a Saturday afternoon (or really any time!), so I tried to take an easy route. This disorganization contributed to the lack of a photo :)
I bought a pico de gallo style salsa, some frozen roasted corn and a can of black beans. I drained and rinsed the beans and tossed them into the salsa and thawed corn. I brought along a couple of avocados and a lime. When we got there, I diced up the avocado, added the juice of the lime, and tossed it all together.
It was beautiful! Really ... the colors were great, the texture was nice with the soft avocado and the crisp corn, and it tasted wonderful. We served it with chips, but honestly, I liked it so much I ate some of it just with my fork. Everyone raved about it. I must admit that I felt slightly guilty that it was so easy, but I'm definitely bringing this next time I need to bring an appetizer to a party.
I hope you are all enjoying the end of your summer!
