This spicy guacamole recipe, with grilled corn and grilled avocado is possibly the best guacamole ever.

“Did you make this spicy guacamole recipe up yourself?!?” asked my friend Tom, with is eyes wide open and a look of awe in his face. I nodded my head, a little alarmed at how intense his reaction was to it. “This. Has. To. Be. The. Best. Guacamole. Ever.” He said, dramatically pausing between each word to emphasis how serious he was. Tom has a habit of being a little drama queen when it comes to…well everything. But when he likes something he’s not afraid to show it. Apparently he really liked my spicy guacamole recipe enough to deem it the best ever. (Jump directly to the recipe.)

I rarely make guacamole, not because I don’t love it, but more because if we have it in the house, AJ and I will eat it nonstop. Like NONSTOP nonstop. I’ve been known to absentmindedly sit down with a book, a bag of tortilla chips and a bowl of guacamole and before I know it, I’m three chapters in and dipping my chip into an empty bowl. It’s a bad situation all the way around, though I tell myself that avocados are good for me (the chips on the other hand…) so I don’t feel too bad about it. Still the amount of avocados I might go through if we made guacamole in our household would be insane if I made it on a regular basis. So I stick to making it for special occasions.

The funny thing about guacamole is that even though it’s pretty simple in nature (mashed avocado with some other seasonings) it’s nearly infinitely malleable with the variations. My pal Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking has a whole chapter on guacamole in her book Absolutely Avocado and still she has a bijillion more versions of guacamole on her blog! Of course, she’s obsessed with it. I can’t blame her. To proclaim one or another recipe as the best is sort of like choosing between children I imagine. But apparently my friend Tom has no problem with that sort of Sophie’s Choice. My guacamole is the best one. Who am I to argue with a drama queen?

You have the same guacamole restriction in place and our house. When I make it, I have to hide my own personal stash, otherwise I am not getting a bite! BEST EVER? Now I have to try it!

Sounds perfect! Love the addition of grilled corn.

Holy heck, that guac looks amazing! I am absolutely pinning this to try for my mother’s day bbq!

I’m the same way with guac, and I always end up pouring Cholula sauce over it all because it’s never spicy enough…til now!

Grilled avocados?! You’re a culinary genius!

Um yes, yes please. Oh wait this would require me going to the grocery store, nevermind, I’ll just keep fantasizing about this gauc until I have time to shop.

We LOVE smoky grilled avocado. Now I have a backyard with ramps and I am thinking a few of them need to go in a batch of this guac!


Irvin May 7, 2014 at 3:32 pm

Whaattt?!? A backyard of ramps? Send some my way!


Jennie @themessybakerblog May 7, 2014 at 5:49 pm

We’re the same with guac. If it’s in the house, we’re going to eat it until the bowl is empty. I love that you spiced things up and grilled the avocado and corn. Love! Pinned.

Awesome, I’ll be giving this a go in time for footy on Sunday.

Ok, now you’ve done it… I want to go and make guacamole… And it’s 7 am here… I love the stuff although I’m intrigued about that spring garlic that I’ve never seen or heard about before…

Irvin you really made me laugh with the guacamole and chips thing :-). Great recipe by the way.

The best recipe for guacamole so far. I`m big fan of the good guacamole and that is truly amazing. Thank you!
