Brush or drizzle the corn cobs with Avocado oil.
On medium-high heat, grill the corn for 10 minutes, turning consistently.
Over a cutting board - hold one corn cob vertically - cutting the kernels off. Repeat this process with the remaining corn cobs.
To a large bowl, add the corn, black beans, bell pepper, onion and lime juice; stir to combine.
Add the black pepper, salt and cilantro to taste - checking the flavors as you go.
Lastly, sparingly add the chipotle powder, again testing the flavors as you go.
