Bean and Avocado Salad

Beans and lentils are in the wonderful legume family.  Packed with nutrtion and fiber, these foods can help us maintain a healthy weight and prevent diabetes.  This is a simple delicious cold salad focused around beans.

I take a can of black beans, a can of kidney beans, and open a can of corn.  Then I chop and add red onion, cucumber, green and my other colored bell peppers, tomatoes, a bunch of cilantro, spinach, and green onion too.  I'll stir this up and then add my avocado last.  Squeeze the juice of 1 whole lime in it and add chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and cayenne to taste.  Don't be stingy with the chili and cumin.  Little secret and buying seasonings.  Go to your local health food store or some place you can buy in bulk rather than the grocery store.  It's much cheaper that way.

Toss this altogether and eat like this or serve over a bed of lettuce greens.  Yum!
