Black Bean & Corn Salsa

I made this for the football party. It took me about 10 minutes to make and was a huge hit!

Black Bean & Corn Salsa
1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can corn (drained)
4 large tomatoes (cut into big chunks)
3-4 garlic cloves
1 red onion, (diced small)
2 avocados, (cut into small chunks)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 lime, juiced
1/2 lemon, juiced
salt and pepper to taste

Pulse tomato chunks and garlic in a food processor until tomatoes are slightly crushed. Then mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to let flavors flourish. Serve with tortilla chips. You can use 1 can of chopped tomatoes if you do not have fresh tomatoes, just make sure to drain them before pulsing in food processor. If you like spicy salsa, add 1 jalapeno to the tomatoes and garlic and pulse together before mixing with the other ingredients.

And how awesome is this chip and dip server. My friend Jeni got this for me for my wedding and it is so sleek and awesome....everyone always compliments it when I have it out! If you want one...go to.....
