Grilled Corn Guacamole

This is a different take on guacamole. If you add corn, and you add plenty of it, it really does add an interesting sweetness and (if it’s adequately grilled) smokiness that really sets this apart from other guacamole. The end result? A tasty treat.

Grilled Corn Guacamole
Serves 10


3 ears corn, shucked
6 whole avocados, diced
1 whole large tomato, diced
1/3 cup onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
2 tablespoons diced fresh jalapeno
1 whole lime, juiced
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground cumin
½ cup cilantro leaves

Grill corn until nice and golden, with good grill marks on the kernels. Allow to cool a bit, and then cut the kernels off the cobs. Set aside.

Halve avocados and remove pit. Cut avocado into a dice inside the skin, and then scoop out with a spoon.

In a bowl, combine corn kernels, diced avocados, diced tomato, jalapenos, minced garlic, lime juice, salt, and cumin. Stir gently to combine. Add cilantro and stir in.
