Grilled Guacamole

Grilled Guacamole This grilled guacamole isn’t just a product of my grill junky status, grilling avocados is a fantastic idea and the perfect way to get some of that wonderful smoke flavors into your favorite summer dip. After all, the 4th of July is right around the corner, and next to Thanksgiving, it’s America’s favorite reason to take a day off work, eat too much food, and spend the day with people we love.

Of course meat was made for the grill, but vegetables have an ever better transformation when cooked with fire. When comes to grilling, anything goes, don’t forget about how amazing fruit is when it has a bit of char, or even slices of pound cake. Don’t discount pizza, it’s quick and fabulous off the grill.

Try something new next time you break out your grill, who knows, you might just find a new way to impress your guests.

    I have been wanting to try a grilled guacamole for ever! I love this idea. Speaking of grilling things that are a little out there, I grilled tomatoes the other day and oh my word they were fantastic!

    I just heard about the possibility of grilling avocado, and it still blows my mind. I need to brave starting my grill on my own, I confess. This guac might convince me.
