Chilli Bean and Avocado Salsa


I managed to make a salsa for the first time. Traditionally eaten in South America, this chilli bean salsa is spicy. However, it is balanced out with the cool avocado and sour cream. In addition to this, it is very filling and you can adapt the ingredients. There are a lot of procedures going on but the result is well worth it.

Serves: 4-6
