cayenne-rubbed chicken with avocado salsa and black beans with lime and scallions

That might be one of the longest blog post titles I've ever written because just about every single ingredient in this dinner gets a mention. So, when you think about it, it's really not a whole lot of ingredients that went into this dinner. Just a few really nice and fresh flavours that all compliment each other.
To start, the Cayenne Rubbed Chicken with Avocado Salsa. I was kinda 'meh' about the rub. I wish there was almost a more creative spice blend that might have worked. We actually had to rinse off Owen's chicken portion because of the level of heat. The quick avocado and red onion relish was super tasty and it definitely enhanced the flavour of the chicken. The Black Beans with Lime side was great, but again I think the spice blend could use a little tweeking. But everything balanced out if you manage to get all three in one bite.
