  • 4 avocados, sliced in half
  • ½ red onion
  • 2 jalapeno peppers
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 limes
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • ¼ cup crumbled cotija cheese


  • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat for at least 15 minutes. Brush or spritz the avocado halves, onion and peppers with olive oil. Place everything on the grill – make sure the avocados, onion and limes cut-side down. Grill for 8 to 10 minutes, until grill marks appear. Be sure to continuously turn the jalapenos so the skin gets charred all over. Remove the veggies from the grill and let them cool.
  • Scoop out the avocado and chop it. Peel the jalapenos and remove the seeds, then dice it. Dice the onion – you might not use it all, it’s up to you. It’s easier to grill when kept in half though, so be sure to grill it all. You can add about 3 tablespoons of the diced onion to the guacamole and keep the rest for another dish or recipe.
  • Combine the avocado, diced onion and peppers, cilantro, juice of 2 limes, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Mash it with a fork until it reaches the desired consistency – chunky or smooth! Stir in the cotija cheese, leaving a bit for topping. Serve immediately!
