Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

I’ll be celebrating this Mexican holiday with a feast of small plates tonight and wanted to share my guacamole recipe.  It’s not super traditional, but yields delicious results!  Let me know if you like it!

guacamole-with-cornGuacamole with Corn
2/3 cup fresh cooked sweet corn
3 ripe, but firm avocados
1 medium red onion, diced
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2/4 cup chopped cilantro
juice from 2 limes
salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl.  Cover and refrigerate to blend flavors.  Makes about 4-5 cups of guac.

Enjoy!

    Looks good. I like the corn idea. I also like chopping up little avocado cubes and putting them in the guacamole.

    Looks lovely. Do you have a good margarita recipe to go with it?
