This Grilled Veggie Guacamole is going to be your new favorite way to eat this side. Grilling the veggies beforehand gives this classic a whole new flavor.
Grilled Veggie Guacamole is going to be your new favorite way to eat guac - because what's better than charred onions + jalapeños + tomatoes mixed with fresh avocado?
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".
You can use this with tacos, burgers, sandwiches...pretty much anything.
So, eat up.
