Boy oh boy have we had an eventful summer! I had planned to take it easy while the kids were out of school and not do very much recipe development or promotion. We were just going to take it easy and celebrate my husband finishing his college degree in May. Then we found out a couple of weeks later we are moving and then right after that, my car was STOLEN OUT OF OUR DRIVEWAY in the middle of the night. (Luckily we got my car back, but still so creepy!)
So things on the blog have been WAY quieter than I intended. I apologize about that and I have MISSED YOU GUYS! I had to pop on here and check in with y’all and share with you my sister’s INCREDIBLE Grilled Guacamole recipe!
This is so great to make when you already have the grill going, such as for Steak or Chicken Fajitas, a Southwest Steak Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette or maybe our favorite Pollo Loco? I could face-plant in a bowl of this guac right now. I am so making it again this weekend! Yum!
It’s important to note, when making grilled guacamole: You don’t want to cook the vegetables through, it’s really just a quick grill for flavor and marks. For the avocados: Cut in half and remove the seed. Grill face down, with the skin still on to help keep them together. And lastly, make sure you let your veggies cool completely before mixing up your dip!
- 3 hass avocados, halved & seed removed
- 1 tomato, halved
- 1 red onion, sliced into thick rings
- 1 lime, halved
- 2 jalapeños (for less heat, remove ribs and seeds. We do 1 with seeds and 1 without for our heat preference)
- 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4-1/2 cup or cilantro, chopped
- 1 tsp cumin
- salt & pepper to taste
Heat grill to medium high heat and lightly grease.
Cut avocados in half and remove seeds, keeping the skin on. Grill face down for 2 to 3 minutes, until you get grill marks & set aside
Cut your tomatoes in half and grill the cut side down for 2 to 3 minutes & set aside
Cut your red onion in large rings, keeping the rings in tact. Grill those as well, for 2 to 3 minutes & set aside
Lastly grill your halved jalapenos and limes for 1 to 2 minutes. Set all of your veggies aside and allow to cool completely.
Dice your avocado, tomatoes, and onions and mash together in a bowl. Add your minced jalapeno, lime juice and seasonings and serve!
