Blistered corn guacamole adds a little extra flavor to your appetizer spread.


  • 3 avocados, halved and pitted
  • 1/2 jalapeno, diced
  • vine-ripe tomato, diced
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • salt
  • Chips, for serving

Yield: 4 servings


  1. Place the ears of corn on the grates of your gas range. Alternatively, you could do this on a grill. Char the corn on all sides, rotating it with a pair of tongs every few minutes. Set aside and allow to cool to room temperature. Then using a knife, slice the kernels off the cob.

  2. To a bowl, add the avocados and smash, using a fork, until pureed. Fold in the reserved blistered corn kernels, jalapeƱo, tomato, lime juice and a few pinches of salt. Give it a taste and adjust the salt according to taste. Serve with chips.
