I can’t believe yesterday was my first time coming up with the idea to grill my avocados before making guacamole. It added a smokey flavor to the dip and this is a great snack/appetizer to make for any occasion, especially on a football game day!

Yield: 8

Ingredients:
4 avocados
1 Tbsp olive oil (for the grill)
1/4 cup red onions
1 lime
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cup cilantro (optional)
1/4 cup tomatoes (optional)

Steps:
1. Heat grill on medium heat. Cut avocados in half and take pits out. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and the juice of half of a lime. Place avocados faced down on grill and let sit for 5 minutes, or until you could see grill marks.

2. In a small bowl, spoon out avocados, squeeze the juice of the other half of the lime, onions, cilantro, salt and pepper. Smash together with a fork until slightly chunky. Serve with tortilla chips, amazing!
