Are you an avocado fan! Check out this new guacamole recipe I created using fresh seasonal corn. In our area avocados are readily available, so here in San Diego you can find them year-around. This recipe for calls for the addition of fresh corn to your Guacamole. We top our breakfast eggs with slices of avocado, stuff our tacos, and make guacamole weekly! I grew up on my uncle Mike’s avocado farm, and as kids we would play hide – and seek in the orchard, along with the rats and snakes. We played for hours but also ate lots and lots of avocados. As I visit my Leucadia farmer’s market weekly, I’m  always on the hunt for seasonal produce for my recipes. Corn is in season, so why not add it to your avocado-guacamole.  Melissa’s produce provided me with fresh avocados and all the fixins.

This is a great way to keep your guacamole fresh.

Hi Cathy, The Guac-lock actually worked! I love coking from my pantry or refrigerator ingredients, always a surprise when things work out.
Besides, I love uncooked fresh corn…
