In honor of Cinco de Mayo,
I thought that I would share one of my favorite adaptations to my Ultimate Guacamole...
Roasted corn and jalapeno.
It turns my Ultimate Guacamole into Super Guacamole.
By adding the roasted corn and jalapeno the guacamole becomes a little smokier and sweeter.
Roasted Corn and Jalapeno Guacamole
4 large avocados
1 small purple onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 jalapeno peppers, roasted, seeded and minced
2 ears corn, roasted, kernels removed
20 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 -1 teaspoon salt
juice of 1 lime
To prepare the avocados--remove the pits and dice in the skin. Use a spoon to scoop the avocado from the skin. Place in a large bowl. Add the onion, garlic, jalapeno, corn, and cherry tomatoes. Stir to combine. Add the cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cilantro (if using--I usually leave it out because my husband doesn't really like it) and lime juice. Stir to combine. Taste and add remaining salt if needed.
