Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

Pineapple Guacamole

If there’s one snack I love in the summertime, it’s a big, mounding bowl of fresh guacamole and a pile of tortilla chips! Add an ice cold margarita, and now we’re talkin’. Add smoky, sweet grilled pineapple chunks to the guacamole and you have my. full. attention.

Whoa, mama.

Pineapple Guacamole Recipe

This fabulous recipe from Foodie Bride, which I adapted to use a grill pan, kicks guacamole up a major notch! Tossing in some sweetness and added texture makes an already good guacamole recipe GREAT, and even if you’re skeptical one tortilla-full will have you convinced! Or, taco full. Or, let’s just say a heaping mouthful. No time for tacos.

Guacamole

Grab a margarita, a couple of friends who like to share, and a handful of ingredients to try this tasty spin on everyone’s favorite summertime snack! It’s fresh and easy, a little spicy and full of flavor!

Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients:

1 tsp. olive oil

Half of 1 (20 oz.) can pineapple chunks

2 large avocados, pitted

1 Roma tomato, diced

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely diced

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (from 1 lime)

Kosher salt and pepper

Directions:

Preheat grill pan to high heat and drizzle with olive oil.

Remove avocado flesh from shell and mash with a fork or potato masher. Mix in diced tomato, red onion, jalapeno, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper. Gently mix in pineapple chunks.

Enjoy!
