When I went to Austin last month,  I ate a lot of Mexican food. I was in heaven. One of the best things I ate in Austin was the Green Chile and Roasted Tomato Guacamole recipe Jenny and I created during our little cooking challenge. Our guacamole didn’t win the grand prize, but that didn’t stop everyone from eating it! The bowl was licked clean! It was a hit!

I couldn’t wait to make our guacamole creation at home! I knew Josh would love it and I was right! It is now one of our favorite guacamole recipes!

I love sitting down with a big bowl of guacamole and tortilla chips. I will eat, eat, and eat until the bowl is gone. I can never stop myself.

This is a great guacamole recipe for summer because you can use your garden tomatoes. Roasting the tomatoes doesn’t take long and it brings out the best flavor. The roasted tomatoes taste like candy…maybe even better!

The guacamole also has other goodies like cilantro, lime, red onion, jalapeño, and cotija cheese. It is great with tortilla chips or you can serve it along side your favorite Mexican dish!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grape tomatoes
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 large ripe avocados
  • 1 4.5 oz can Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

  1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place grape tomatoes on a baking sheet and toss with olive oil. Roast until tomatoes are juicy and start to pop, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. Cut each avocado in half lengthwise. Remove the pit from the avocado and discard. Remove the avocado from the skin, and place the avocado flesh in a bowl. Smash avocado with a fork until desired consistency.
  3. Add the green chiles, cilantro, red onion, jalapeño, lime juice, and cotija cheese. Gently stir in the roasted tomatoes. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Serve immediately with tortilla chips.

  1. Wow I’m glad you were inspired in Austin and now I’m reaping the benefits! This Green Chile and Roasted Tomato Guacamole is a must every time we make our taco’s. Or like you said it could be the main dish I’m just worried my wife isn’t going to make enough. 🙂

  2. Guacamole is my favorite and adding a little spice is always a good idea! It actually feels like the perfect weekend for some homemade guacamole 🙂

  3. Oh . . . I love a good bowl of guac, especially fun variations of the dip. I have an avocado sitting in my freezer at the moment. I plan to make a paleo/trim healthy mama/healthy version of chocolate cake . . . with avocado in it! I’ll have to let you know how that recipe goes. Or, keep checking my blog for the post!

    From your whole foody!

  4. I did not discover my love of guacamole until later in life. I try to make up for this by eating it every chance I get now. Definitely making this! My mouth is watering just looking at this!

  5. what a fun twist on a classic appetizer. I love how beautifully colorful this guac is. Can’t wait to give this a try at my next dinner party.
