If you haven’t tried this grilled version of guacamole, you’re missing out on a whole lot of flavor!
This Grilled Guacamole
is made from fresh summer vegetables that are thrown on the grill to add a rich smoky twist to classic guacamole.
As with most foods, grilling the vegetables enhances the deep natural flavors, and in this case it was no exception. You can just lightly toast your avocados and onions on the grill or grill them longer like I did here to get those beautifully defined grill marks and a slightly smokier taste.
Grilling the avocados for just a couple of minutes causes them to start to caramelize and make already creamy avocados even creamier. If you are daring, you could even throw your tomatoes on the grill, but I prefer mine raw and firm to contrast with the rest of the guacamole.
It’s amazing what just a few minutes on the grill can do to put a little excitement into old boring guacamole. Throw all of the diced ingredients into a bowl and mash them slightly with a fork. I’m a guacamole purist and prefer mine on the chunky side served with salty tortilla chips.
Yum! This version of guacamole will have you running back to your grill for more.
