Totally Grilled Guacamole

Loves Food, Loves to Eat: Totally Grilled Guacamole

This weekend is the kickoff of grilling season, and I'm stoked! I. Love. Grilling. We actually grill year round in my house, but we really start to go grill crazy around this time every year.

We grill everything from the salad to the bread to the dessert. So I figured… why not grill the guac too!?

Yep, grilled guacamole. Grilled everything. Avocados, corn, tomato, tomatillos, green onions, and even the lime. You could (and, really, you should) add a pepper too. Maybe a jalapeño or poblano.

Avocados get all creamy and nutty when you grill them, and we all know that an ear of corn is amazing with a little char on it. Even the lime takes on a zingy, limier flavor with a little kiss of the flame.

PS. Who else is SO excited for Arrested Development this weekend!? I bet a piping hot cornball would be pretty awesome dipped in a bit of grilled guac…just sayin!

Totally Grilled Guacamole

3 avocados, halved & pit removed
1 ear of corn, shucked
1 smallish roma tomato
3-4 green onions
2 tomatillos
1 lime, halved
1 pepper (jalapeño or poblano)
salt & pepper 
Cotija Cheese

Heat the grill over medium flame. Brush all the vegetables with olive oil. Place all items on grill: avocado and lime halves cut-side down, everything else whole. Keep an eye on everything, and grill until just charred. Flip the corn, tomato, tomatillos, and pepper half way through. Remove and let everything cool for a few minutes. Scoop avocado into a bowl, and mash. Slice the corn off the cob, and dice the tomato, onions, tomatillos, and pepper. Stir everything together, and add juice from half the lime (to start, add remainder if desired), and salt and pepper to taste. Top with crumbled cotija cheese.
