When I meet someone that doesn’t like guacamole, I immediately think you have guac to me kidding me. (har har…..) In all seriousness, if I could write an entire blog post in avocado and guacamole references, I would absolutely do that. Like that phase that people went through with kale. Adorning their cars and items with stickers professing their love for kale. I would do so for an Avocado. I saw a mug the other day that said “relationship status: Avocado” Yes!!!! I need that in my life. Which brings me to today’s post. If you could not already tell, it’s an avocado recipe. More specifically a delicious guacamole recipe. Yaaaaaas! I love guac because you can vary the add ins making a great and healthy snack! This particular recipe I found when looking for something to bring along to our company picnic. Since I love guac, I thought it would be the perfect addiction. Heck if no one ate it, more for me! I could live off this stuff. I love the flavor combination in this particular recipe. The sweet corn and spicy jalapeno (which I grew in my own garden!) compliment each other. The queso fresco adds a pleasant cheesy yet not overwhelming taste. It’s very similar to the recipe I usually make, using tomato instead of the corn, so I would absolutely consider this version one of my favorites. It’s too good to stop good.
Grilled Corn Guacamole
- Shuck the corn and grill over medium heat, until it's charred on all sides. Remove from the frill and set aside to cool. Once cool enough to handle, remove the kernels from the cob and set aside.
- Halve and pit the avocados. Scoop out the avocado and place in a bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork.
- Add in the grilled corn, red onion, jalapeno, lime juice. Season with salt and pepper. Top with queso.
