Guacamole with Roasted Garlic

Guacamole with Roasted Garlic, we love guacamole and it always makes me think of my childhood, so I am going to share my memories with this Roasted Garlic Guacamole recipe. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Growing up in Fallbrook, California we had access to REAL avocados. My mother would make guacamole in a huge bowl and my dad would set up the waffle iron. Dad would heat up big flour tortillas in the waffle iron and sail them to your plate like a Frisbee. Then, we would fill them with guacamole and eat them like big burritos. Mom made it with bacon, sweet onions, tomatoes and cilantro. Over the years I have added red pepper and garlic. I have slow smoked some garlic for our guacamole tonight. Oh, this is good stuff. We sometimes have it just for dinner.

I still smile when I remember one year when my grandmother came to visit from Texas. Mom made a batch of guacamole. My grandmother not being familiar with how to roll or eat a burrito had no clue on how to catch the tortilla when it came your way. Well, she made the mistake of asking my dad to “toss her a tortilla” then turned to talk to someone. I saw that thing sailing through the air and hit my grandmother right in the side of the head. She squealed and we all laughed to tears. In the years to follow she always kept an eye on him when it came to tortillas.  

They are all gone now. I still have the memories of the love and fun we all shared at that big table with the tortillas flying in the air.

  • 1 Tbsp. Country Bob’s Seasoning Salt (optional)
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced

Directions: Guacamole with Roasted Garlic

The spices above are optional, of course. I like things with a little zing, so you can add these to your taste. Sometimes I add the mayo and sometimes not, it is a little creamier with it. I have been making it this way for almost 20 years and everybody that tries it always keeps coming back for more.

Slice your avocados and remove seed. An easy way to get the seed out it hit it with your knife just hard enough for it to stick in the seed and twist it. The seed will pop right out. Be careful here you are not cutting trees and avocados are slippery.

Using a large spoon, spoon the avocado out of the shell into a large bowl. Mash it up. I use a potatoes masher but you can use a fork if you prefer.

Cook bacon until just crisp while you are doing the avocados. Cut the bacon with kitchen shears before cooking it (easy). Run the garlic threw a blender to make a paste for easy mixing in the avocados. Chop the cilantro, onions and tomatoes, juice the lemon and add everything in with the avocados and gently mix well. I have learned that if you let it rest and get happy for awhile or overnight it blends and just gets better.

Serve as a dip or in tortillas or however you want. It’s good on burgers, too.

About Our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Louisiana, Green Mountain, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char-Griller, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….
