Found this in Food and Wine Magazine and sounds just enough different to give a try. To make ahead of time, press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate overnight.
- 3 medium scallions, white and tender green parts only
- 2 medium garlic cloves, unpeeled
- 1 jalapeno, seeded and quartered lengthwise
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 avocados, halved and pitted
- 2 tablespoons lime juice, fresh
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper (to taste)
- Preheat a grill pan.
- In small bowl, toss scallions, garlic and jalapeno with the vegetable oil.
- Grill over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until charred all over, 5-6 minutes.
- Transfer to a work surface and let cool.
- Finely chop scallions and jalapeno and transfer to a medium bowl.
- Peel the garlic cloves, mash them to a paste and add to the bowl.
- Scoop the avocado into the bowl and coarsely mash with a fork.
- Fold the cilantro and lime juice into the guacamole, season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
- For a brighter, crunchier guacamole, finely chop the scallions, garlic and jalapeno and stir them in raw.
So delicious! We grill jalapenos quite often and I never thought of putting them in the guacamole. What a difference it makes in the flavor. I will always do it from now on. Thanks for posting this great recipe.
Hi Bonnie G #2, this is really a fantastic twist on the regular guacamole! The smoky flavor of the jalapeno was the best! Thanks so much for posting, Manami ;)
Very tasty and different guac! We loved the grilled jalepeno flavour. Yummy! Thanks Bonnie!
