Grilled Corn Guacamole

Guacamole gets a very summery, BBQ-appropriate twist with the addition of my most favorite summer veggie! This Grilled Corn Guacamole is a go-to dip in our house that we love making for parties or date night.


  • Small red onion
  • 2 ears of fresh, local corn
  • Oil of choice for grilling
  • 4 ripe avocados
  • Juice of a lime
  • Pinch of cumin
  • Generous flaky sea salt
  • Small handful of fresh cilantro
  • Optional sprinkle of chili salt


  1. Remove the skin from the onion and cut it into rounds. Remove the husks from the corn.
  2. Grill the onion and corn on a well-oiled grill, flipping half-way through, until tender and lightly charred on both sides. Set aside until cool, then dice the onion and cut the corn off the cob.
  3. Chop the cilantro finely.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, mash the avocados, lime juice, cumin, and sea salt. To the avocado, add the diced onion, corn kernels, and cilantro, then mix gently.
  5. Transfer the guacamole to a serving dish. If desired, finish it off with a sprinkle of chili salt.
