Sgrilled guacweet corn is ready and coming out of fields and gardens in bucketfuls!  We had sweet corn twice last week, but I think this week, I’m trying this grilled avocado guacamole with sweet corn.  Sounds just yum!


  • 1 tablespoon corn oil
  • Juice of 1 lime, divided
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Pinch of paprika
  • 2 avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
  • 1 cup sweet corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste


  • Preheat grill to medium high heat.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together corn oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice, garlic powder and paprika.
  • Brush avocados, cut sides up, with corn oil mixture and add to grill, cut sides down. Cook until lightly browned and grill marks appear, about 3-4 minutes; let cool.
  • In a small bowl, gently mash avocados using a potato masher. Add corn, red onion, goat cheese, cilantro, remaining lime juice, salt and pepper, to taste, and gently toss to combine.
  • Serve immediately.
