Verde Steak & Black Bean Avocados

OK, so this picture is absolutely horrendous. It was too dark not to use the flash and I was too hungry to get my DSLR....so if you follow my blog in hopes of fantastic food photography - I'm sorry, it's probably time to move on. 

Despite the awful photo, this meal is a new favorite and one that will surely be added to our rotation. 

Not only is this recipe delicious and healthy, it's SO. STINKIN'. EASY. 

Here's what you need & what you do: 

  • Steak of your chosing
  • Salsa verde {I just used Archer Farms brand}
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 red pepper
  • Chopped Onion {to taste}
  • Garlic {to taste}
  • Lime Juice {to taste}
  • S&P {to taste}
  • Avocado {1 half per person you're feeding}
  • Olive Oil {just enough to saute}

  1. Stab some holes in your steak with a fork and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Grill steaks to your liking. 
  2. Saute chopped onion and garlic in a little olive oil until onions are brown. 
  3. Drain and wash the black beans and add them to the onion/garlic mixture. 
  4. Chop up the red onion and add that as well. 
  5. Season the beans & veggies with lime juice, salt, and pepper to achieve your desired taste {I also added a little chipotle tobasco sauce to give it a little spice}
  6. Peel & Pit your avocados and cut them in half. 
  7. Fill avocados with bean mixture. 
  8. Cover steak in salsa verde and ENJOY!
