This recipe for sports figure John Salley’s Slam Dunk Guacamole is from the California Avocado Commission. It features corn, jalapenos and onion. It’s a very California-style take on guac. Another version of this recipe replaces the garlic with John Salley’s Garlic Chipotle Sauce.
1 cup frozen corn, thawed in boiled water for 5 minutes
2 jalapeno chiles, seeded and halved
1/4 red onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. olive oil
4 tsp lime juice
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
Preheat oven to 450 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Toss corn, chilies and onion pieces with oil in a large bowl, and then spread in a layer on baking sheet. Roast 14-20 minutes until lightly browned. Peel and chop jalapenos and onion. Mash avocado with lime juice. Stir in remaining ingredients.
