This summery guacamole takes the “tableside” trend to a whole new place – the grill! Fresh avocados, sweet onions and other tasty veggies take on flavor from grilling, while a sprinkling of Mexican Cotija cheese gives this dish an even more delicious twist.

Ingredients

  • 1
    medium sweet onion, thinly sliced, cut in half
  • 2
    jalapeño chiles (3 inch), cut lengthwise in half, seeded
  • 4
    ripe large avocados (about 2 lb) cut in half, pitted and peeled
  • 3
    plum (Roma) tomatoes, cut lengthwise in half, seeded
  • 1/4
    cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2
    tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1
    clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1
    teaspoon coarse (kosher or sea) salt
  • 1/2
    teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4
    cup Queso Cotijo cheese, crumbled

Steps

  • 1
    Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray 18x14-inch piece of heavy-duty foil or grill pan with cooking spray. Place onion and chiles on foil or pan. Place on grill over medium heat.
  • 2
    Cover grill; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until onion and chiles are crisp-tender and just beginning to brown. Add avocados and tomatoes to the onion and chiles. Cover grill; cook about 5 minutes longer or until avocados and tomatoes are hot, turning once halfway through grilling.

    Remove vegetables from grill to cutting board. Finely chop chiles and coarsely chop remaining vegetables. In medium bowl, place vegetables, cilantro, lime juice, garlic salt and cumin; mix gently until combined. Stir in the cheese. Serve warm. If desired, serve with tortilla chips.

  • For extra heat, add 1/4 teaspoon red or green pepper sauce.
