Chipotle, Corn and Avocado Salad or Dip

I have a corn and black bean salad recipe that my family just loves. You can find the recipe here. I have a deep love for Chipotle Chiles and thought they would be a great addition to this salad. I added the avocado because our local grocery store had them on sale for $1. They added a great creaminess to the salad. If you don't like things too spicy, I would suggest you start with only 1 Chipotle Chile. We ate it like a dip with scoops, but it would also be great served as a side with grilled chicken or fish.
Chipotle, Corn and Avocado Salad
1  package (12 ounce) frozen corn, thawed 
1  can (15 ounce) black beans, rinsed and drained
1  small red pepper, chopped
5  green onions, chopped
2  Avocados, chopped
1/4  cup vegetable oil
2  tablespoons fresh lime juice
1  tablespoon red wine vinegar
2  chipotle peppers, finely chopped
2  cloves garlic, minced
2  tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro
1/2  teaspoon cumin
1/2  teaspoon salt
1/4  teaspoon pepper 


In a large bowl mix the corn, black beans, red pepper and green onions. Gently mix in the chopped avocado.


In a small bowl whisk together the vegetable oil, lime juice, red wine vinegar, Chipotle peppers, garlic, cilantro, cumin, salt and pepper. Pour over the corn salad and gently mix.


Cooks Note: To chop Avocado~Slice avocado lengthwise in half and remove the pit.  Leave in the shell, take a knife and slice down the avocado and then across in a criss-cross pattern. Take a spoon and gently scoop cubed pieces into your bowl.


Enjoy!

  1. Anything salsa related always looks fantastic to me. I would put this on just about anything and the little bursts of sweetness you get with corn makes for a great recipe! I'd love to grab a handful of those scoopy chips and go to town on this salad!
