Recently I tried the most phenomenal Guacamole from a restaurant in Miami called TAP 42. While I’m not always able to go and enjoy this guacamole, I figured I’d take a stab at making it. Also my friend gave me a humongous avocado, and when your friend gives you an avocado you make guac! This is one of the things I love about Miami, I get my avocados and mangos for free in the summer. No shame in my game. Let’s get started.
I recommend you char 2 ears of corn, you are going to dice half an onion and juice two limes over the diced onions, stir them around and refrigerate for at least an hour. I lost track of time so mine sat for about 2 hours. This method takes the bite away from the onion and mellows them out. Also you’ll want to cook your bacon so that it’s cooled down before adding it to the avocado.
Now let’s assemble first cut your avocado in half and scoop the insides into a bowl.
But before that take a picture of the avocado, because it is a thing of beauty. Now mash the avocados and add the onions and juice from the onions. Then add the corn, cumin, salt, pepper and bacon and mix together until combined. Now we add the feta, trust me it works. I was going to add cotija but I didn’t have any on hand, so feta it is. I served this at a get together and only had enough left for some guac on toast. Hasta la proxima.
Notes: if you wanted some spice you could totally add some hot sauce or jalapeño. Or both! Even better char the jalapeño!
- 1 Florida avocado or 3 – 4 hass avocados
- 1/2 red onion
- 2 ears of corn charred
- 2 limes
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 2 slices of bacon cooked
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3 Tbs Feta Cheese crumbles
- Tortilla chips
- Grill two ears of corn and cook two slices of bacon. I like the flavor of charred corn, but you could just boil your corn and that would be fine too. Once the bacon has cooked and cooled chop the bacon into bite sized pieces.
- Dice half a red onion and add to a bowl, then juice 2 limes over the red onion and mix with a spoon. Then cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
- After an hour has passed, cut the avocado and scoop the insides into a bowl and mash away. Once mashed add the onion along with the juices the onion was soaking in. Add the cumin, salt and pepper to taste.
- Next add the corn, bacon and feta cheese and mix well. If you are going for a pretty presentation then set aside about 1 tbs of corn, bacon and feta and garnish in the end. Serve with tortilla chips.
