Ingredients

Mexican Pasta Salad

  • 4 cups whole wheat pasta cooked
  • 1 whole avocado diced
  • 2 cups black beans cooked
  • 1 cup corn cooked
  • 1 whole tomato deseeded, chopped
  • 1/2 cup peppers chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped

Avocado Dressing

  • 1/4 cup guacamole (we used WHOLLY GUACAMOLE)
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 lime juiced
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin

Instructions

  • Start off by making the dressing for the pasta salad.
  • We mix one WHOLLY┬« GUACAMOLE portioned container with lime juice, avocado oil, chili powder, and cumin. You could also add your favorite sweetener to sweeten it up. We like it tangy.
  • Mix cooked pasta with chopped peppers, onions, cilantro, corn, and black beans.
  • Pour the dressing over the top and mix to combine.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.
