Grilled Veggie Guacamole Recipe

I know Cinco de Mayo was a week ago, but let’s be honest…guacamole is good any time of year. And this Grilled Veggie Guacamole is a fun twist on a classic.

My whole life my Grandma has had huge avocado trees in her back yard which means there is guacamole at every family get-together. And even though I was the pickiest of picky eaters as a kid, and wouldn’t go near an avocado, at some point I finally saw the light and realized how amazing avocados are. And let me tell you…no one makes better guac than Grandma.

So every time I make guacamole I try to live up to “Grandma standards”.

Between the charred veggies and added cumin, this guac takes on a little bit of a smokey flavor, that I promise you won’t be mad about.
