Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

Oh my, oh my, oh my!

This baby was absolutely delectable.  We love guacamole at our house and have tried many versions of it, but I think this is our favorite way. EVER.  I thought I had a favorite until now and oh man, what deliciousness.  This one totally beats the other, hands down.

The sweetness of the grilled pineapple with the avocado was a heavenly combo.  Like the angels are singing, the sun breaks through the clouds, and everything is right with the world.

Yep, not kidding, it was that heavenly.  Especially because I got to eat it,  That always makes things better too.  So put this on your menu for your next tailgate party (or if you hate football and never watch it, make it as soon as you can) and your guests and family will love you forever for it.

Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

2-3 slices of cored and peeled fresh pineapple (canned works great too if you don't have fresh)
2 medium ripe avocados
1/2 small yellow onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup cilantro, finely chopped
3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
3/4 tsp kosher salt
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded, and finely minced

1.  Heat a grill to medium-high.  Very lightly oil the grates.  Place the pineapple slices on the preheated grill and cook, turning once, until lightly charred on both sides.  Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature.  Dice into medium sized chunks.

2.  Split each avocados and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl.  Mash with a fork until mostly smooth.  Stir in the onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and jalapeño and continue mashing until it has a fluffy whipped texture.  Taste and adjust seasonings to your preferences.  Stir in the diced pineapple and serve immediately with tortilla chips.  Enjoy!
