Grilled Guacamole

Grilled Guacamole

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 3 roma tomatoes or 2 plum tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. Build a charcoal fire for direct grilling.
  2. While grill is heating, cut the avocado in half and remove the pit; slice them lengthwise into ½-inch thick oval slices. Cut the onion into ½-inch thick round slices. Slice the peppers in half and remove the seeds and veins.
  3. Place the prepared vegetables directly over hot coals (about 450-500 degrees) and cook for 5 minutes (or until they char and start to soften), turning once.
  4. Remove the vegetables from the grill and dice. Combine the diced vegetables, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl and mix vigorously. Serve warm, or refrigerate and serve chilled.
