I’m taking guacamole to the next level with this roasted garlic guacamole recipe. This recipe is easily doubled, tripled, or even quadrupled for larger parties (or maybe you just love guacamole that much).
I’m back. It’s Wednesday. Phew. It’s been quite a week already.
We couldn’t watch Game of Thrones with the rest of the world because Matt had to work. Instead, we watched Monday morning. And you guys – no spoilers here – I was emotionally drained the rest of the day. I just feel like I spent the entire episode on high alert.
I wanted to spend the whole day Tuesday talking about the episode but I had to go to work. And apparently none of my coworkers watch the show. Okay, one of them watches. Who are you people? How do you not watch one of the most popular television shows on the planet? Ugh. Much like Jon Snow, my coworkers know nothing.
Moving on to lighter and brighter things –> SUMMER IS COMIN’. (Of course, that’s said in my best Jon Snow voice.) And with summer comes patio season and fruity cocktails. (Uh, yum to the nth degree: Spicy Watermelon Margaritas!!) And smaller bites because who wants to eat a roast when it’s 90 degrees out? Nobody.
So, I bring you: Roasted Garlic Guacamole.
Elevated guacamole, if you will. The fancy stuff. Well, it tastes fancy. But my Roasted Garlic Guacamole only takes an extra 60 seconds to make when compared to regular guac.
Guacamole on its own is amazing. Who doesn’t want to face plant right into a bowl full of mashed avocado, onion, tomato, and heapings of salt? But we’re taking it to the next level by adding in some roasted minced garlic. YUM.
I also like to add half of a diced jalapeno but if you’re not feelin’ the spice – no worries! Or if you’re feelin’ extra frisky, add in an entire jalapeno. You do you.
Dig in with your favorite tortilla chips or raw veggies. Top your burrito bowls. Or eat with a spoon. Whatever floats your boat. Alright. Let’s rock out with our guac out. 🤘🏼
Roasted Garlic Guacamole
- 2 avocados
- 1/2 white onion
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 jalapeno
- 1 lime
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tsp chilli powder
- 1/2 tbsp avocado oil
- 1 bunch cilantro, to taste
Heat a small pan over medium heat. While it's warming up, prepare your ingredients: mince the garlic, dice the onion and jalapeno, chop the cilantro, and remove avocado from shell. Add everything but garlic to a mixing bowl.
Once your pan is warmed, add avocado oil. Saute minced garlic for about 30 seconds or until fragrant. Add garlic to the mixing bowl.
Add your salt, black pepper, chili powder, juice from your lime and chopped cilantro. Mash mash mash with a fork until your guacamole has reached the consistency you like. I like mine a little chunkier. Taste to make sure it's salty enough. Add more salt or cilantro.
Serve and enjoy!
