I always seem to be a week late and a dollar short when it comes to posting recipes for food holidays. In theory, Cinco de Mayo is probably my favorite holiday as far as food goes (though obviously it is not technically just a food holiday, you know what I mean), but let’s be real it doesn’t need to be Cinco de Mayo for me to make or share a Mexican inspired recipe with you. Mexican food is a staple in our house, whether we are picking it up from one of our favorite local places or I’m cooking it up at home. I know I professed my love of Greek food recently, but Mexican food ranks high up on the list as well. Especially when it’s made with freshest ingredients like in this Mango Avocado and Black Bean Salsa recipe.

This Black Bean, Mango and Avocado Salsa is filled with all the fresh flavors of Mexican that I love. I made it a couple of weeks ago while my parents were visiting and they loved it. I love introducing my parents to foods they are not used to eating. We were not big Mexican food eaters growing up – other than the occasional taco night I don’t recall salsa or guacamole a regular thing until I was out on my own and cooking for myself.

Mangos and avocados have been on sale for weeks in my neck of the woods so I’ve been buying them like crazy. I was inspired to make a really easy fresh and flavorful salsa using both mangos and avocados along with black beans and of course lots of cilantro and lime. Easy easy easy! This is something you can pull together at the last minute to put out with chips for friends and family if you are entertaining, or serve in tacos or over grilled chicken for dinner. However you serve it I think you’ll love it.

Enjoy this Mango Avocado and Black Bean Salsa recipe – and don’t forget to share! 🙂

    Black beans (and chick peas) have been saving my bum lately – they’re the best mess-free, protein-packed finger food for Jacob!! He’s been eating them every night while I cook dinner. 🙂 PS: I want to eat this entire bowl.

    • Aggies Kitchen posted May 11, 2015 at 8:06 am

      yes! those are the best finger foods, totally. I haven’t done chick peas in a while for Micah, thanks for the reminder. And girl…this one was hard not to eat the whole bowl 🙂

    Anything with mango + avocado is a shoo-in at my house. I think we’d all just grab our respective forks and dig into this as an entree. YUM!

    This looks like a perfect Tuesday afternoon salsa to have with some blue corn chips. That may be my way of saying…I gotta make this now! Yum!

    haha yeah, any holiday that is at the beginning of a month sort of sneaks up on me, and I’m never able to post recipes in time for it. But whatever, Mexican-inspired dishes like this salsa are good all the time. I need NO excuse or holiday to something like this!

    This looks beautiful. I can’t wait to try this salsa with fish tacos. I think my kids are going to love it too.
