I had also heard of grilling avocados to make guacamole, so I thought I would give it a shot. It was so easy, anyone can do this, and I make lazy man’s guacamole, so this is super easy and very yummy.
- Cut the Avocado in half and drizzle with olive oil, I used Chipotle Olive oil, leaving skins on.
- Grill for about 5 minutes or until you see good grill marks. I grilled mine on a medium/medium high heat.
- Let cool for a few minutes. You don’t really want hot quac.
Once it’s cooled add ::
- 1 tsp sour cream
- 1 tsp salsa ( we use Emerald Valley)
- Garlic powder to taste
- juice of half a lime
All these ingredients are according to taste. If you like it creamier use more sour cream. More spice and chunkier, use more salsa. You get the idea. The lime keeps it from turning brown. When you are done, throw the seed in also to keep it from turning colors.
Mash it all together. Whala!!
This was by far the creamiest quac I have ever made and the smokey flavor was amazing. The thing I really like about this is for those days you get home and realize that you have chosen a avocado that was not quite ripe. This really does soften things up. My avocado was actually perfect (that never happens) and it was extra creamy. Wow!!
Needless to say it was a big hit. My son had a friend over and he was scraping the bowl.
Sorry no end result pics. I got it made and they were dipping right away.
Yep, if it can be cooked it can be grilled and in this case even if you didn’t think it could be cooked, it could STILL be grilled.
I will also admit to you right now I have been holding out on you. We have been grilling cabbage and it’s to die for. Everyone in the family scarfs it down. Olive oil, salt and pepper.
