Avocado and Black Bean Dip

I created and devoured this guac-bean dip in college because it’s very cheap, filling, and healthy. When I am low on fiber, this is the perfect snack or meal. Serve with pita or tortilla chips.

Original recipe makes 4 servings


1 avocado – peeled, pitted, and mashed
1/2 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 clove garlic, minced, or more to taste
1/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
sea salt to taste
