Traeger Smoked Guacamole
Because it’s the weekend, and we all need a great dip recipe! First, we smoke avocados, then we roast corn and fresh poblanos until they have a nice char. Then, for this Traeger Smoked Guacamole, we mix them all up with fresh garlic, spices and lime juice for a unique take on this classic dip.
9 1/3 Whole avocados, seeded and peeled
1 1/3 Whole poblano pepper
5 1/3 Whole ears corn, husked
1/3 Cup chopped cilantro
1/3 Cup chopped tomato
1/3 Cup chopped red onion
2 2/3 Tablespoon lime juice
1 1/3 Teaspoon cumin
1 1/3 Tablespoon minced garlic
salt and pepper
When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal flavor, use Super Smoke if available.
Place avocados cut-side up directly on the grill grate and smoke for 10 minutes.
Remove avocados from the Traeger and increase temperature to 450℉.
When the Traeger is to temperature, place whole poblano pepper and corn directly on the grill grate. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a nice char has been achieved.
Cut the charred corn from cobs and set aside.
Place the poblano pepper in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap; wait 10 minutes, then easily remove the skin. Dice the pepper and add to the corn kernels.
In a large mixing bowl, coarsely mash smoked avocados, leaving some chunks. Add peppers, corn and all remaining ingredients. Mix to combine.
Note: Guacamole is best made as close to serving as possible. For short-term storage, seal in an airtight container with a piece of plastic wrap against the surface of the guacamole. Enjoy!
