  1. Coarsely mash avocado. Fold in remaining ingredients. Serve with red and blue corn tortilla chips if desired.

*To roast corn, soak 2 ears of corn in water for 1 hour. Remove husks and silk. Roast on oven rack in 375°F oven, turning occasionally, until kernels appear slightly shriveled. Cool and cut kernels from cob
