Garlic roasted guacamole Villa Cocina

We love a traditional guacamole because its easy to make and truly delicious. But, its exciting when we get to tweak a classic; especially, by adding roasted garlic for those nutty smoky flavors. In fact, incorporating the herbal distinctive tones from an habanero takes this recipe to another level. Guacamole is one of those recipes you can play with by mixing in different Mexican ingredients that go accordingly. The outcome is always delicious and outstanding. This is one version you are sure to love!

We love a traditional guacamole because its easy to make and truly delicious. But, its exciting when we get to tweak a classic; especially, by adding roasted garlic for those nutty smoky flavors. This is one version you are sure to love!

Ingredients

  • 2 ea garlic cloves, unpeeled 

  • 1 ea habanero, serrano or jalapeno 

  • 2 ea avocados, large 

  • 1/2 cup tomatoes, diced 

  • 1/2 cup red onion, diced 

  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped  

  • 1/2 juicy lime (1 TBSP) plus more if desired. 

  • Salt to taste (1/2 tsp kosher)

Directions

  • Place a comal or griddle over medium heat. Roast the garlic, and pepper. The garlic needs to soften and lightly brown. The habanero needs to char all around. Remove from the heat and set aside until needed.
  • Peel the garlic and add into a molcajete. Using the pestle, grind it with a pinch of salt until it becomes a paste. Remove the stem from the pepper and grind it in, until it’s broken down and incorporated. 
  • Cut open the avocados, remove the seed and scoop out the flesh straight into the molcajete. Mash it down but preserve a chunky consistency. Immediately squeeze in the lime juice and mix it with a spoon so all of the avocado is exposed to its acidity. Make sure the pepper and garlic is well incorporated as well. 
  • Finally mix in the tomato, onion, cilantro and salt until evenly distributed. ENJOY!
