Grilled Guacamole

grilled guacamoleThere are oodles of recipes incorporating an avocado but the most familiar is guacamole and everyone has their own version.  Grilled guacamole is a slight spin on an old favorite. The avocado has been around for thousands of years and is rich in potassium (helps regulate blood pressure) and vitamin A (helps your eyes).  Avocado paste can be applied to the skin to help with rashes and to smooth rough skin.  Guacamole is so easy to make and is a crowd pleaser at a barbeque, pot luck or family gathering.  I’ve been making guacamole for years and was recently inspired by the one I saw from The Kitchn.

2 avocados, halved, stones removed
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
5-6 drops of Tabasco sauce
1 large tomato, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/3 cup fresh coriander, chopped
juice of one lime

gucamole ingredientsTurn barbecue on to medium heat. Make sure grate is clean and lightly oiled. Place avocado halves flesh side down and grill 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Scoop out flesh and in a bowl lightly mash avocado. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Serve with your favorite corn chips.

The Culinary Chase’s Note: Try to select avocados that aren’t too ripe otherwise the consistency will be mush-like.  Enjoy!
