I have tried many recipes for guacamole with corn but it always seemed that something was missing. When I came up with this one I was hoping I wouldn't hear "this is good but, there is just something missing." I didn't hear that comment today! This time they think I hit it right.

How To Make roasted corn with cumin guacamole

  • 1
    Preheat grill to medium heat.

    Once cool, cut the kernels off the cob and set aside.

    Combine the avocado, lime juice, red pepper flakes, cumin, salt and pepper in a large bowl and mash with a fork or potato masher. Mix in red onion, garlic, parsley, jalapeno and tomato.

    Lightly toss in corn. Mix in sour cream; 1 tablespoon at a time to get desired consistancy.

    I served it with red and yellow bell peppers, jicama, sliced radishes and tortilla chips. But any of your favorite dippers would be fine.
