What does summer mean to you?  If your family is anything like ours, it means venturing outside for as much of the day as we possibly can.  I personally love this time of the year because we change up our work day routine a bit.  Instead of coming home and eating dinner right away, we let the kids play in the backyard while we prepare dinner.  And by prepare I mean grill!  We love to grill because it is easy, yummy and super convenient while we play outside!  Last summer I tried something different for a dinner and it was amazing and super easy for those busy work night dinners!

Yes, you read that right!  Grilled avocados topped with a delicious black bean and tomato salsa!  Colorful veggies, a little spice and fun on the grill!  Dinnertime can be stressful after a long day at work so I am always looking for short cuts and tricks to making dinner prep easier.  Just like using the grill to cut time and bring convenience I have found that the cans of Hunt's Tomatoes make my dinner creations a lot easier!

We enjoy these little avocado boats for side dishes or as whole meals!  My kids adore avocados, tomatoes and beans so they are thrilled when we decide to make these and I happy too!  Talk about a great way to sneak in a ton of veggies, healthy fats and fiber!   Plus, when I make this recipe for parties or BBQ's I look pretty fancy!!  My little secret though - so not fancy but totally easy!

I always grab the Hunt's Diced Tomatoes in Garlic because that extra kick of garlic makes these delicious tomatoes even better.  Did you know that Hunt's canned tomatoes are flash steamed which leads to a safe removal of the peels?  The process is pretty cool - learn more here.

And now I am hungry.  Not only is the grilled avocado a treat for your mouth but the Black Bean and Tomato Salsa is one of our favorites to enjoy with chips or on tacos too.  A must try for any upcoming summer party for sure.
