Foodie Week Extended - Grilled Corn Guacamole

Happy Memorial Day!

Today I'm sharing a super tasty recipe from Ree, The Pioneer Woman.  Yes, 2 of her recipes in one Foodie Week - She's that amazing.  Her recipes are that good.  THIS recipe is better than that good - it's superb guac!  Supyumguac!

Recipe: Grilled Corn Guacamole

| | |


  • 3 ears Corn, Shucked
  • 6 whole Avocados, Diced
  • 1 whole Large Tomato, Diced
  • 1/3 cup Onion, Finely Diced
  • 2 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 2 Tablespoons Diced Fresh Jalapeno
  • 1 whole Lime, Juiced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro Leaves

Preparation Instructions

Grill corn until nice and golden, with good grill marks on the kernels. Allow to cool a bit, then cut the kernels off the cobs. Set aside.

Halve avocados and remove pit. Cut avocado into a dice inside the skin, then scoop out with a spoon.

In a bowl, combine corn kernels, diced avocados, diced tomato, jalapenos, minced garlic, lime juice, salt, and cumin. Stir gently to combine. Add cilantro and stir in.

Yum Yum Yum.  Supyumguac!

Dig In!  The roasted corn added a crunchy, sweet, smokey flavor that just cannot be beat!  The guac on it's own without the corn is a great recipe, but add the corn and it's over the top guac!  If you make anything this weekend, this should be on the menu!  Easy, inexpensive and full of flavors!

Review (1-10, 10 being awesome!)
Taste: 11
Ease: 10 (just time consuming chopping, but well worth it)
Cost: 10 - all of the groceries have corn on sale right now *I got 4 for $1 yesterday*

We've already done this recipe twice in the past month. It's a new summer staple... and maybe a fall staple... a winter one too, oh, and don't forget spring!

Have a great day!  Hope it's full of fun, laughter and delicious food!
