Blistered Guacamole

Do you love Mexican-inspired food? I do! And while some elements of Mexican cuisine are really healthy, the copious amounts of cheese and, often, lard, are not so great for us. We know this, but it’s all just so delicious!

On the plus side, avocados are amazing for our hearts! In this version, I’ve added a few extra goodies to make it completely irresistible!

For this blistered guacamole version, I first roasted the tomatoes, onions, and garlic in the oven until the tomatoes were blistered, and the onions were caramelized. Blistered tomatoes are delicious, and have more available lycopene than raw tomatoes. And caramelizing the onions takes away their bite, and leaves a sweet mellowness that makes the dish really unique.

I grilled my avocados to add a little smokiness, but this is completely optional if you want to save time.

Use Blistered Guacamole alongside Black Bean Sweet Potato Enchiladas, to smother my 5 Minute Weeknight Tacos, or Quick Plant Based Tacos, or top off this 3 Bean Soup. No matter what you do with it, you’re going to love it!

  • 1/2 Red Onion, sliced

    Going to try the Blistered Guacamole. We are getting into eating more Guacamole instead of dips for our chips.
