Fire Roasted Corn Guacamole

Fire Roasted Corn Guacamole

Author: Julie M.

2014 All-American Recipe Contest Grand Prize Winner in the Guacamole, Salsas and Dips category. The author notes, "This just may be the most awesome Fire Roasted Corn Guacamole that I have ever had! Really. Complicated?  Nahhhh! It took me maybe 10 - 15 minutes to roast, chop, dice, grind and mix this lovely dip. These ingredients are to make just a small batch (gotta have portion control around here)...but for more than a few people, I would consider doubling it."
