I am constantly on the lookout for healthy and delicious foods that my family of four will enjoy. I was pleasantly surprised with this bean salad recipe we discovered on a recent shopping trip to Trader Joe’s.
If there is one thing I love about shopping at Trader Joe’s, it’s that they share some great recipes at their demo station, plus they always have coffee!
I love cooking, but it’s nice when I can easily whip something up that we can snack on for a few days! Lisa’s Bean Salad is one of those types of dishes I can count on for that. I love it because it’s simple, it’s affordable, it’s healthy and can last for up to 3 days, depending on how hungry everyone is. The best part is, it’s refreshing and filling with just 7 ingredients. Only 6 ingredients if you don’t like avocado, but you’re crazy if you don’t!
With a little over $15 and 15 minutes, you feed your family this awesome dish. Make it for your next summer party, it’s sure to be a hit!
Lisa’s Beautiful Bean Salad Recipe
I’m not sure who Lisa is, but she is a genius! Here you go, and you’re welcome!
1 can Black Beans
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Kidney Beans
1 jar Corn Chili Salsa
1 tub Tomatillo Fresh Salsa
½ bunch cilantro (chopped)
1 avocado (optional)
Drain and rinse the beans. Pour into a bowl with salsas. Stir well and add cilantro and avocado. Chill well and serve with tortilla chips!
Note: I actually found the dip or salad to be saucier when I did not drain the beans, which I preferred. If you like less sauce then drain away.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. I’ll leave you with this because it always makes me laugh, “beans, beans they’re good for your heart, the more you eat them the more you fart! The video is much better, please watch it.
