Grilled Guacamole Recipe - StumbleUpon

Okay….here’s the step by step for Grilled Guacamole: You need to prepare either your indoor or outdoor grill.

Be sure to get all that fabulous garlic from the bottom side of your grater.

Next, juice a lime or two over the avocado. Add the chopped red onion. And then the tomatoes! Throw in some chopped cilantro. Season the guac with some salt and a few turns of freshly cracked black pepper. And serve it up with some of your favorite chips!! Check out Tasty Kitchen for the full recipe of Grilled Guacamole!
