Grill Grrrl Recipe: Fire Roasted Key Lime Guacamole

Robyn Lindars

Fire Roasted Key Lime Guacamole
This recipe puts a tropical spin on traditional guacamole as it uses tart key limes. All ingredients are grilled, including the limes, which adds a nice char and smokiness to the dip. Regular Persian limes can be substituted if key limes are not available.


  • 4 HAAS avocados, sliced in halves
  • 8 keylimes, sliced in halves
  • 3 tblsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 8-10 cherry tomatoes OR 2 small Roma tomatoes
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 2 jalapenos
  • sea salt- to taste
  • ground pepper- to taste
  • skewers, pre-soak for 20 minutes – for the garlic cloves and cherry tomatoes


  1. Heat the grill to medium heat, about 350 degrees. Halve the avocados and remove the seeds. Skewer the garlic cloves and cherry tomatoes (no need to skewer if using Roma tomatoes). Grill the avocado, limes, jalapenos, garlic and tomatoes until char marks form.
  2. Chop the charred avocado into bite-size pieces. Mince the tomatoes, garlic, and jalapeno. Combine all the chopped ingredients in a bowl, next squeeze the juice from the charred limed into the bowl, using your fingers to catch the seeds.
  3. Stir all ingredients together, and add the cilantro and sea salt and pepper to taste. For extra flavor, add a little lime zest.
  4. Chill and serve with tortilla chips. This is also excellent as a topping for fish or chicken and on salads.

    Largely speaking, girls don’t or can’t grill; the science supports the statement. Girls do, however, make excellent cheerleaders, but I digress.

    In looking over the Grill Girl’s ‘site, I think she actually gets it, about the grilling that is. I don’t know if she could negotiate the cheerleading thing.

    I’m going to compose this guac’, it seems intriguing. Although, I will say that with the developmnet of Grape Tomatoes, I will never use cherry tomatoes again. I am a large fan of Roma tomatoes, though.

    This is gonna’ be good!

    Stay hungry, my freinds.
