I’ve been part of Mazola Corn Oil’s Heart-Healthy Summer campaign and today, I bring you the final post. And of course I had to save the best for last, so without further ado, I present to you sweet corn grilled guacamole.

Now I have never actually grilled guacamole before. I’ve seen it done by so many bloggers but I just never got around to it. But I’ve finally tried it and boy, have I been missing out.

Grilling the avocado with Mazola Corn Oil seasoned with a bit of garlic powder and paprika brings about such a smoky and caramelized taste. It adds that special touch to this guacamole before you smother it with sweet corn kernels, red onion, cilantro, freshly squeezed lime juice and goat cheese for that creamy base.

Now I’m sure I’ve said this a ton of times before, but I really mean it when I say that this is my absolute favorite guacamole. I’ve eaten it with a giant spoon, along with some tortilla chips, but the spoon method was my favorite. But no matter how you eat it, this smoky, creamy guacamole is a sure win in my book!
