6 plum tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
⅓ c. sliced green onions
2 T. snipped fresh cilantro
2 T. lime juice
1 to 2 serrano peppers, chopped*
¼ t. salt
¼ t. cumin
1 ripe avocado, chopped
• Roughly chop tomatoes and combine with black beans, green onions, cilantro, lime juice, serrano pepper, salt, and avocado.
* I only use one half of a serrano pepper because they are so hot, and I don’t use any seeds. You might want to wear gloves or put your hand in a sandwich bag while chopping, and make sure you wash your hands after and don’t touch your eyes or face. They do add a good flavor, and they don’t make the whole thing too spicy, but you have to be careful with them.
