Black Bean, Corn, Avocado & Hominy Salad

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
I LOVE avocados!  I seriously do!  I have been buying at least 2 each week, but lately I have found myself grabbing a bag of them because I have found so many great uses for them.  I use them to create a super creamy and healthy smoothie, and I also love to use them simply sliced on toast, then topped with sliced tomatoes and a couple leaves of basil.
At our most recent family get-together, my sister-in-law brought a great recipe of Black Beans, Hominy, & Corn.  I loved it so much and could have stood there and eaten the whole bowl.  I thought about the recipe and the only way it could possibly be made better was to add some avocado to it.  That is what I did, and it turned out SO GOOD.
Black Bean, Corn, Avocado & Hominy Salad
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans corn, drained and rinsed
1 can hominy, drained and rinsed
1 avocado, chopped
1/4 cup chopped cilantro (or to taste)
1 red pepper, chopped
1/4 of a large red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin
1/4-1/2 cup red wine vinegar, to taste
Juice of 1 lime
salt and pepper, to taste
Mix all together.  Tastes best if you let the flavors mingle in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.  Serve as a salad or with tortilla chips.
I recently added a recipe to the "Guac-Off" Contest that is happening at the "I love avocados on Facebook" page.  I am waiting to hear the results, but I sure wish I had the above recipe at the time of the contest.  I think it just might have won it.  Yes, it is THAT good.
 I have had fun exploring the Avocados From Mexico facebook page, it has free avocado screensavers, wallpaper, virtual gifts for friends and even ringtones.  I downloaded the instrumental ringtone and my girls think is is so funny to see me break out in my Mexican Avocado dance when it goes off!

  1. Yummy! I never seem to go for black beans. I'll have to rectify this.

  2. I tried making this--delicious! (I used 3 avocados. . .) It's perfect for a Super Bowl party (remember, we're looking for veggies!) plus most of the ingredients are on sale due to the Big Game.
