What is Guacamole?
Guacamole is a dip or condiment with mashed avocado as its central ingredient. It is a mainstay of Mexican cooking.
In addition to avocados, this guacamole recipe calls for fresh corn on the cob! It is seasoned with salt, pepper, and cumin to create a full-bodied flavor.
This recipe is easily adaptable with bell peppers or even peas for a slightly sweeter flavor!
How to Make Corn Guacamole
Guacamole with roasted corn is a cinch to prepare, once you have the grill going. Your first step is to prepare the corn.
How to Grill 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.
How to Make Guacamole:
- Using a knife, cut the kernels from the cob.
- Peel and mash avocados in a mixing bowl.
- Stir in remaining 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.
Follow these simple tips to prevent the guacamole from browning in the refrigerator or the freezer.
- To refrigerate, 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.
- To freeze pack in freezer bags, squeezing out the air before sealing. It will keep up to 3 months in the freezer. Defrost in the refrigerator or at room temperature.
If it does turn brown, don’t worry and remember this is a sign of oxidization not spoilage. Just give it a good stir and mash in another avocado for color!
