Fresh Fiesta Bowl

Taco nights, BBQs, potlucks, appetizers, snacks…this fiesta bowl covers it all! Imagine a flavor explosion of fresh peppers, cherry tomatoes, corn, onion, garlic, avocado, and lemon. All served on a salted tortilla chip or homemade wheat tortilla. Or even straight out of the bowl on a spoon. Whichever method of eating you decide to attack this bowl with, know that the result will be a happy and healthy stomach following said fiesta bowl consumption.

Don’t expect to bring any of this back home with you after your party…it will be devoured in minutes! I like to make mine at least a couple of hours before it is to be served (5-6) and let it chill in the refrigerator. The longer the ingredients are allowed to sit together, the stronger the flavor. Don’t be afraid to make it your own either…the best way to make big bowls of goodness like this is to taste and add as you go. Use my recipe and my taste buds as a base but perfect it to your own liking for best results 🙂
