Corn and black bean guacamole

Juliet Hemmati/Staff

We’ve all been there — standing in line at Chipotle. We have succumbed to paying a couple more dollars for a small scoop of some delicious guacamole. Luckily, we don’t have to anymore. Not only is guac significantly cheaper to make on your own, it’s also surprisingly easy and fun to whip up. You can step up your game even further by adding surprises like corn and black bean, like we do in this recipe that serves three. Just be sure to share with your friends.

What you’ll need:

2 ripe avocados (squishy, yet firm)

1 finely chopped jalapeno pepper

1 chopped medium Roma tomato

1 chopped medium red onion

1 finely chopped clove of garlic

1/3 cup or corn (canned or fresh)

1/3 cup of black beans (canned or fresh)

2 limes

2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro

salt and pepper to taste
