  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • Corn tortillas
  • 4 tablespoons sour cream (optional)


Combine the avocado, half the onions, lime juice, and cilantro in a medium mixing bowl and stir until mixed well. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the remaining onions and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Add the corn and beans and stir. Season with chili powder, cumin, and coriander. Stir until well combined. On a tortilla, place a little less than 2 spoonfuls of the bean mix, then a spoonful of the avocado salsa. Top with sour cream and serve.
