Grilled Guacamole #GuacSquad12

Okay, we may have out did ourselves here. Did you read that title? Grilled Guacamole. Say what? Here’s the thing you all, the char taste that mixes throughout the guacamole is really delicious. Normally we would add a lot more Greek yogurt, but with this recipe you want to back off to keep the grilled flavors prominent. So, who wants me to serve them up some Grilled Guacamole?

Since Brian and I are now officially running this website together AND we’re focusing on BBQ/grilling recipes, this just made sense. You can make this recipe with all your favorite ingredients, but just go crazy and grill each item. Someone in the GuacSquad made a peach guacamole, can you image adding grilled peaches: yum.

Here are a few recipes that would work perfectly with this guacamole: Spicy Southwestern Burger, Wood-Smoked Beef Brisket Nachos, Grilled Shrimp and Veggie Quesadilla, Smoked Pork Loin Tacos with Black Bean and Corn Salsa.

Ingredients

4 avocados (not quite ripe)
2-3 tomatoes (medium in size)
Medium onion
2 limes
Small bunch of cilantro
2 Tbsp Gourmet Garden chunky garlic
Heaping Tbsp 2% Greek yogurt
Salt to taste
(Optional) hot sauce

Instructions

Preheat propane grill, set to high heat.

Cut avocados in half, then cube each half inside the skin so grill flavor seeps throughout.

Cut tomatoes in half.

Cut thick slices for the onion.

Make three slices in limes.

First, place avocados meat side down and onions on grill, cook each side for about 7-10 minutes. Remove and add the tomatoes and limes, cook each side for about 5 minutes. Then place the cilantro whole directly on the grill and let cook until charred.

In medium bowl, once the ingredients are grilled, remove avocado meat from skin, dice up the tomatoes and onions, finely chop the cilantro, and squeeze juice out of each lime slice. Add garlic, salt, hot sauce, and Greek yogurt. Mix well and adjust where you see fit.

Chill for at least 2 hours and then serve.

Enjoy!

It was truly an honor to be included with such a wonderful group of bloggers. We all have made some extremely creative guacamole recipes, and of course, now I need to try several of them. Did you catch my last post? Well it basically shares all the bloggers involved in the GuacSquad, the sponsors of the event, and the giveaway which I will share below. Here is the post if you missed it.

So what is the GuacSquad? Well, we had the privilege to review that cool kitchen toy, guac-lock, from Casabella. The device ensures the air is removed and the guacamole is air-tight to prevent the oxidation process from occurring. Someone in the group stayed strong and tested out how many days the guacamole would really hold in the guac-lock- she said it held for a total of six days. I give her a lot of credit, because I would never have been able to wait to eat my guacamole for six full days. I can however tell you there was no browning when left over night, which completely impressed me. You can check out the video to see how it fully works.
