Grilled Guacamole

Grilled avocados and onions give a smoky twist on classic guacamole.

Ingredients

6
ripe avocados, halved and pitted
1/2
red onion, sliced into 1/4 inch rings
2
small tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/4
cup finely chopped cilantro
1
lime, juiced
Salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla chips

Directions

  • 1 Spray grill rack with cooking spray and preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • 2 Place avocado halves flesh side down on the grill. Place red onion rings on the grill. Grill the avocados and onions for 3-4 minutes or until grill marks are visible. Remove from grill and let cool.
  • 3 Once avocados have cooled for a couple of minutes, scoop them out of their skin using a spoon and dice coarsely. Place in a large bowl.
  • 4 Dice the onion and add it to the bowl.
  • 5 Add the tomato, onion, cilantro, and lime juice. Stir together well, slightly mashing the mixture.
  • 6 Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • 7 Place plastic wrap directly in contact with the guacamole so the mixture doesn't oxidize, and chill in the refrigerator for at least a half hour before serving. Serve with chips.

Grilled Guacamole

As prepared by Girl Who Ate Everything,

Holy guacamole!


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.

How to Grill Avocados

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.
