What is Guacamole?
Guacamole is a dip or condiment with mashed avocado as its central ingredient. It is a mainstay of Mexican cooking. Usually lemon or lime juice and often mayonnaise are added, along with other ingredients.
In addition to avocados, this guacamole recipe calls for fresh corn on the cob, diced tomatoes and onion, chopped cilantro leaves, chopped jalapeno pepper and lime juice. It is seasoned with salt, pepper and cumin to create a full bodied flavor!
How to Make Guacamole
Guacamole with roasted corn is a cinch to prepare, once you have the grill going. Your first step is to prepare the corn.
To Cook Corn:
- Pull back the husks without detaching, and place cobs on the grill.
- Turn a quarter turn every couple of minutes.
- When the corn is cooked through and most of the kernels are charred, it is ready. (Depending on how hot the grill is, it will take about 15-20 minutes.)
To Make Guacamole:
- Using a knife, cut the kernels from the cob.
- Peel and mash avocados in a mixing bowl.
- Stir in the other ingredients and season to taste.
If you are wondering what to eat with guacamole you can really eat anything! It’s a thick and substantial dip, so we love serving with corn chips or scoops, celery sticks, pita chips or even crackers. It would make a delicious avocado toast or as a topping or dressing on a salad too!
How to Keep Guacamole from Turning Brown
Guacamole has a tendency to quickly turn brown from oxidation. The discoloration does not signal spoilage, but it is unappetizing. To prevent browning in the refrigerator, lightly press a sheet of shrink wrap on the surface and up the sides of the bowl to create an airtight seal, and then cover the bowl with another sheet of wrap.
Can You Freeze Guacamole? Fire grilled corn guacamole can also be made in advance and frozen. It will keep up to 3 months in the freezer. To do so, pack in freezer bags, squeezing out the air before sealing to prevent browning. It can be defrosted in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
