To taste:
minced garlic     Fresh minced or jarred
salt/pepper          Master Salt Blend, Twisted Lime Salt, fresh cracked pepper
cilantro                 Fresh or dried
minced onion      I use dried minced as the flavor isn’t as over powering
avocado                If I have one on hand, chopped

Thaw corn in colander; drain black beans; mix in bowl with undrained Rotel tomatoes and green chiles.

Add in remaining ingredients to taste; chill for at least four (4) hours.
