Fire Roasted Corn Guacamole with California Avocados

Fire-Roasted Corn Guacamole

California Avocados travel from tree to table in just a few days, so we get them when they’re at the peak of ripeness — and they make incredible guacamole. In this recipe, they’re combined with fire-roasted sweet corn, pico de gallo, and Mexican cheese to create a dip that’s smoky sweet, subtly salty, a little creamy, a little crisp, and very chunky.

Our tip: Serve this guacamole with a thicker, crunchy tortilla chip and a Lagunitas IPA — a beer with just the right amount of malty richness and fruity hops to complement this flavorful dip.

Servings: 4


1 ear fresh sweet corn
1 jalapeño
2 8-oz California Avocados, seeded, peeled, and chopped
¼ cup prepared pico de gallo (salsa fresca)
2 Tbsp lime juice
2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp kosher salt
Black pepper
Cotija cheese, optional


  1. Roast the corn and jalapeño over a gas flame or on a grill until blistered and charred on all sides. Set the corn aside to cool. Place the jalapeno in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let the steam loosen the skin. Using a paper towel, rub off the charred skins and discard. Seed and mince the jalapeno and cut the corn off the cob. Tip: wear gloves while you’re handling the jalapeño.

  2. Mix together the avocados and pico de gallo, and then add the jalapeño, fresh lime juice, cilantro, roasted corn, garlic, and kosher salt. Add pepper to taste.
  3. Garnish with Cotija cheese and serve immediately.
