Grilled Corn & Poblano Guacamole

Grilled Corn & Poblano Guacamole from

Y’all. I love guacamole. By far I think this is the best guacamole recipe I’ve ever created. Minus my classic guacamole that I make rather often. I was partly inspired to make this recipe after making grilled corn chowder. I had a leftover ear of corn on the cob and a poblano pepper, both already grilled and sitting in my refrigerator waiting for me to make something of them.

By combining both grilled items made for the most flavorful and smokey guacamole I could have ever dreamed of! Bite after bite I felt like I was in a gourmet Mexican restaurant–not at home! That is one of the luxuries of cooking at home. You can create food that would cost double if not triple the amount that a restaurant would charge.

This recipe makes for a lot of guacamole. Which isn’t a problem especially if your entertaining. The night that I made this we had chopped chicken tacos, fresh homemade salsa and lots of guac. The only downfall to the meal is that we weren’t able to enjoy leftovers the next day since we were leaving for Atlanta the next day. So I packed up all the leftovers and did what any good friend would do, we gave them to our friends who were watching our pup. They were super excited. The next day I received a text from them stating how much they loved the grilled corn and poblano guacamole!

    There is just nothing wrong with this at all. Also, I have extra grilled corn right now…which means this is begging to be made!
