Black Bean Guacamole

My daughter is going to be 9 OMG 9 next week. She is my baby. Where have the years gone. I asked her what she wanted on the menu for her family party. We decided on a taco bar instead of a bbq. Taco's are one of her favorite foods. So I have been testing and planning the recipes. This is one of my favorites. I love avocados in every way. I think I love guacamole more. I prefer chunky guacamole to the smooth creamy kind. Like this one. Chopped avocado, tomato, onion black beans, lime and cilantro. Yum! Serve it with your favorite tortilla chips. Aren't these curled ones cool? So what's your favorite kind of guacamole?

1 large tomato, seeded and chopped

1/2 red onion, minced

1/2 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained
and rinsed

3 ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and chopped

2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 pinch ground black pepper, or to taste

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro, or more
to taste 

Stir tomato, red onion, black beans, and avocado together in a large bowl.

Mix lime juice, salt, black pepper, and cilantro into avocado mixture and mash with a fork until desired texture is achieved.

Serve immediately with chips.


  1. Mmmmm....guacamole...I may need to make this right now. :) Thanks!

  2. I like the idea of adding black beans to guac. I love black bean salsa but have never thought to add them to guac. I'm always trying to find ways to add more fiber to snacks so this is great. I'll definitely try it next time I make guac. (I like to add corn to my black bean salsa so I wonder how it would be to add corn too)

    1. It's delish I have made it both ways. You could always just add diced avocado to your salsa recipe instead of mashing it. :)

  3. I can't believe I never thought of throwing black beans into guacamole! :o I love this idea! Thanks for sharing! :D

  4. I never thought of putting black beans in guacamole and my kids love them. PInned.
