Black Bean Avocado Dip

With tailgate season upon us, I thought I’d post this recipe for a great chip dip. We made this recipe a couple weeks ago for a backyard BBQ, but it would make great game day fare! I know that all that we brought home from the BBQ was an empty bowl. This recipe comes from a family friend who is an AMAZING cook – she actually gave me a handwritten cookbook of her favorite recipes for our wedding!

The only thing I might do differently next time is add a few more tomatoes, but that is just personal preference. Make it! You’ll like it!
