Corn, black beans, and pepper in a lime vinaigrette served in avocado cups. Vegetable appetizers for game day snacking that's good for you
For my family, the Superbowl is usually an excuse to sit in front of the TV and eat
My spouse will eat anything, but he loves Slow Cooker Salmon Artichoke Dip and I love him, so I whipped him up a batch. I had an ulterior motive, however--a big slab of salmon and a desire to have leftovers for this.

My new item was this Corn and Black Bean Salsa from Kate at Diethood. I didn't have everything her recipe called for, but it was super easy to chop all the jalapeño, red onions, and cilantro for my daughter's guacamole and Kate's corn salsa at one time. Since my New Year's Resolutions involve adding more avocado to my life, I served it in avocado halves and it was delicious.
Grab the following ingredients, head over to Diethood, and make yourself another Awesome Veggie Appetizer (link to my Pinterest board). Then enjoy the game--or the commercials, or both--with something delicious to munch on.

chopped jalapeño pepper
chopped fresh cilantro
cooked black beans
corn kernels (mine were thawed from putting them up during summer)
Refer to Kate's recipe for the specific amounts. In a large bowl combine all the vegetables except for the avocado. Toss with the lime vinaigrette. Serve in avocado halves (slice a little off the bottom if you want them not to slide all over the plate, or pop them in a bowl and mash the heck of out them with a fork before eating.

Because I like to share leftover remake ideas, on my FB page and on my G+ page I'll share the recipe for what I did with leftover guacamole and corn salsa. Get some cheese. Everything goes better with cheese, right?
