1/4 cup Black beans, canned (drained, rinsed)
1/4 cup Cilantro (coriander)
3/4 cup Plain yogurt, 2-4% M.F.
1 tbsp Salsa, ready-to-serve
1 pinch Salt and pepper (to taste)


  1. Cut, pit, and peel the avocado. See notes. Slice into 1/2 cm thick slices.
  2. Add the beans to a colander. Rinse with water. Drain well. Add to bowl and set aside.
  3. Roughly chop cilantro. Set aside.

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.


  • Can use pinto beans instead of black beans.
  • Can use roasted tomato salsa instead of regular salsa.
  • This recipe would work nicely as a topping for tacos or nachos.
