Southwestern Black Bean Avocado Salad

I feel bad. I haven’t been keeping up with my blog lately. School has just been so crazy that all I keep thinking is “Is it winter break yet?” Lucky, I had a bit of time a few nights back to fix this up. It makes a LOT (leftovers!) and is very filling. Plus, it’s filled with so many colors that it looks quite fancy without much effort. The best part? (Besides eating it, of course) It’s quick to put together. Perfect for the many busy school nights to come.
