Quick Tips:

To remove the avocado skin

Cut into the avocado lengthwise until you hit the pit. Rotate the knife around the entire pit until you have two halves.  Carefully hit the pit with the knife until it punctures it. Turn the knife to pop out the pit. Push a spoon between the avocado and the skin and carve the avocado out of its skin. Discard the skin.

Substitutions

Can use pinto beans instead of black beans.

Can use roasted tomato salsa instead of regular salsa.

This recipe would work nice as a topping for tacos or nachos.
