2013 Fletcher Tomatoes and Peppers

Fletch's Roasted Corn Guacamole

4 avocados, pitted and rough chopped (Not creamy)
3 ears corn, roasted and kernels removed (I use a blow torch!)
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
1/2 white onion, finely chopped
1/2 jalapeño finely chopped
1 cup of grape tomatoes quartered
1 1/2 cups black beans (canned)
1/2 cup jicama finely chopped
1 handful cilantro chopped
1/2 fresh lime juiced
Salt/Pepper to taste 

Combine the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. If it gets too salty you can add a pinch of sugar to enhance the flavor of the corn/tomatoes.

Summer gardens are awesome, it's one of the places in this world of colors and flavors that I can see the glory of God on display everyday.  Feel free to stop by and enjoy it with me. Bring chips and adult beverages!

Quietly making noise,

During the day he can be found fixing people's teeth, but in his spare time you can find Fletch stretching out a pair of flip-flops, creating a new pizza recipe, playing the drums, or rescuing a piece of his tie-dye wardrobe from his wife's donation pile. You can find him online where he writes on his personal blog: theMangoTimes and cohosts with his wife on the podcast.
