Roasted Corn Guacamole

Couple of weeks back we had this Roasted Corn Guacamole at Chili's. We loved it so much that I decided to recreate this at home for a quick snack last weekend. The roasted corn adds some natural sweetness and a pleasant bite to the guacomole which we really loved. I think this is probably the best way to experience the true taste of avocados. I served these with some healthy flaxseed corn chips.

Ingredients -
2 Avocados
1 jalopeno
2-3 cloves garlic
1 lime
1 cup finely chopped cilantro
1/2 cup sweet corn kernels
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped tomato (peel the tomato and chop into small pieces)
1 tsp oil
salt to taste

Method -
1. Cut the avocados in half, discard the seeds and scoop out the avocado from the peel into the blender.
2. Blend the avocados along with garlic and jalopeno into a smooth paste.
3. Heat a tsp of oil in a skillet and roast the corn kernels.
4. Add onions, tomatoes, roasted corn, cilantro, lime juice, salt to the avocado puree and mix well.
5. Serve with corn chips.
