Chipotle Black Bean and Avocado Coleslaw

Charlene Shelfer


I love to create - whether it's growing vegetables from seeds, crocheting, sewing, painting with watercolors, new recipes - it's all good!
My husband and I love the smoky flavor of chipotle chili and what's not to love about avocados? Just threw these ingredients together one night and decided it was a keeper!
The amount of chipotle chili you use is according to taste as the powder is pretty potent.
