Grilled Guacamole

grilled guacamole recipe
Cooking avocado may not be the first thing you think to do with the fruit, but over a hot grill, the flesh turns smoky and savory, almost meaty in flavor. Just a few minutes on each side can elevate raw avocado into its own secret ingredient in this unconventional take on guac.

Grilled Guacamole

  • 3 small avocados, halved, pitted, and peeled
  • 1/2 small red onion, root end left intact
  • 1 medium tomato, finely chopped
  • Handful of cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • Juice of 1 medium lime

Prepare a grill over medium-high heat.

Place the avocados and onion cut sides down on the grill. Cook for about 10 minutes, until lightly charred with grill marks, turning once. Transfer to a cutting board. Cut the onion into small dice and cut the avocados into large chunks.

In a medium bowl, mash the avocado with a fork. Stir in the onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeño, garlic, salt, and lime juice. Taste and add more salt as needed. Serve warm.
