Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Guacamole

Roasted Corn and Tomatillo Guacamole 2

Happy Tuesday, friends. Because we’re friends, I’m going to confess something. Something so crazy and so astonishing. Ready? I don’t like avocados. Nope. Not on salads, not on bread. Not in the kitchen, not in bed. I do not like them with my ham. I do not like them, Sam I am. But unlike Dr. Seuss with his green eggs and ham, I do have one exception.

I LOVE guacamole. And yes, I’m aware that avocados are a key ingredient. In fact, I make guacamole quite often and it’s my go-to dip I bring to family gatherings. But I don’t love plain jane guac. I gotta have lots of goodies in my guac. That’s why I love this recipe. Creamy avocados blended with roasted corn, tomatillos, cilantro, and salsa for a zesty and delicious guacamole dip you’ll want to dunk your chips in, slather on a sandwich, dollop on a taco, pile on nachos, or nestle into a burrito. Holy cow, I’m getting pretty hungry. Is it dinner time yet? For a yummy dip that will disappear in minutes, guac this way! ;)
