Traditional Mexican guacamole gets a modern face lift with the addition of fibre-rich black beans, tomato, and red onion.


  • 4 Ripe avocados, pitted and peeled
  • 1 (19 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed (540 mL)
  • 1 medium red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 Roma tomato, seeded and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup loosely packed, chopped, fresh cilantro (60 mL)
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and fresh cracked black pepper (1 mL)


In a large mixing bowl, mash avocados with a fork or small potato masher until desired consistency is reached.

Pour beans into a colander or strainer, rinse with cold water. Add black beans to mixing bowl with avocado.

Lightly mash about ¼ of the beans. Add onion, tomato, garlic, jalapeño, lime juice, cilantro, salt and pepper; mix until well incorporated.

Serve immediately with tortilla chips.


Tip: For a super smooth guacamole, pulse the avocados in a food processor before transferring to a large mixing bowl.
