This recipe grew out of the need to have Chili’s fire-roasted corn guacamole all the time!
I begged my parents to take me to Chili’s every day so I could have their amazing guacamole, but tragically, they decided to discontinue this recipe.
Luckily, I had eaten so much of it that I remembered all the ingredients! This is a tried-and-true restaurant knock-off recipe that is sure to have you coming back for more!
Fire-Roasted Corn Guacamole
Prep Time: ~15 minutes (plus one hour cool time)
1 ½ cup frozen (or 1 can, drained) yellow corn
1 small onion (diced)
3 ripe avocados
½ medium tomato (diced)
1 tsp of cumin
Salt to taste (I like a lot of salt!)
(optional) 2 small jalapeños (diced)
(optional) ½ tsp red peppercorn flakes
- Heat greased saucepan to medium heat. Once hot, add corn. Stir occasionally. After 3 minutes, add diced onion (if desired, add jalapeños to pan). Cook until corn is slightly blackened, and onions are clear. Remove from heat.
- Remove avocado from shell, and separate from pits. In a medium bowl, mash avocado with a fork until smooth. Add tomato, cumin, and salt to taste (and if desired, add red peppercorn flakes).
- Mix all ingredients together, and place in fridge. Cool for one hour, and serve with tortilla chips.
