Heather Giacone takes first place in 2022 Avofest Guacamole Contest
An easy-to-follow recipe makes for a classic guacamole with a flavor and texture twist of sautéed corn. Not only did Ms. Giacone win for Best Overall Guacamole, she also placed 2nd in Presentation.
Heather Giacone's Award Winning Guacamole Recipe:
5 ripe avocados (I use locally grown)
2 ears of corn
1 T olive oil
1 ½ limes juiced
1 t salt (more or less depending on taste)
¼ red onion (finely chopped)
3 roma tomatoes (deseeded and small diced)
Husk and slice corn kernels off the cob. Add oil to a medium pan, sauté the corn on high heat. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from heat. Cool completely. Slice avocados in half, remove the pits and skin. Dice avocados into a medium/small dice. In a medium mixing bowl, add avocado, red onion, lime juice, and tomato. Season with salt and add all the chilled corn. Mix delicately to keep some consistency to the avocado. Enjoy!
