If you are a guacamole lover (and who isn't), and you are looking to spice up your current recipe - this is a great option. The addition of grilled corn provides a very nice and flavor and texture to the standard guac recipe.
2 ears corn
1 small tomato, diced
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Juice from 1/2 lime
Pinch minced garlic
Dash Onion powder
Dash tabasco sauce
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Salt + Pepper
Peel the husks back on the corn and remove the silk. Pull husks back over the corn and soak in water, about 20 min. Heat the grill, and cook the corn until slightly charred, about 15 minutes. Make sure you continuously turn them to cook evenly. Let the corn cool, then shave off the kernels.
Next, prepare the guacamole. Smash the avacadoes in a bowl, then mix in the remaining ingredients. Mix in the corn. Place the pit of the avocado into the guacamole to preserve the color and freshness.
