Grilled Guacamole


My parents invited us over for tacos last night.  I wanted to bring something, and since I know we all really like guacamole (except my dad, sorry dad!), I thought I'd try this recipe that I found on Kate in the Kitchen.  I've tried a whole bunch of different recipes for guacamole in the past, even the packets of flavoring that you mix with avocados, but I've never seen a recipe for grilled guacamole and therefore I was intrigued.  I used the picture on Kate's blog as a guide, but then tweaked the ingredients to my taste. Although I lost a few onions in the grill, this guacamole was a hit!

3 Avocados
3 Tomatoes (I used small ones on the vine)
1 Lime
1/2 of an Onion
Olive Oil
A few dashes of Hot Sauce
Handful of Cilantro, chopped

Cut the avocados in half and remove the pit.  Cut the tomatoes and lime in half, as well.  Cut the onion into slices.  Brush everything with olive oil and place all ingredients on the grill, fruit side down for the avocados, tomatoes, and limes.  Allow them to cook to desired "grilled-ness" and flip to grill the other side.  Remove from the heat and allow everything to cool.  Remove the avocado from the skin and cut everything into pieces.  In a large bowl, mash the avocados.  Squeeze the desired amount of lime juice over the top and mix well.  Dice the tomatoes and onions and add to the bowl.  Add the cilantro and hot sauce, to taste, and mix well.
