Grilled Pineapple Guacamole

3 slices fresh pineapple, 1/2-inch thick *See Notes
3 whole avocados, halved, seeded and peeled
1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
2 tablespoons pineapple juice, or orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne

For a charcoal grill, grill pineapple sliced on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned, turning once halfway through grilling time. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place pineapple on greased grill rack over heat. COver and grill as above.) (For a grill pan, heat greased grill pan over medium heat. Cook pineapple slices on grill pan for 6 to 8 minutes or until browned, turning once halfway though cooking time.) Core and chop pineapple.

Place avocados in medium bowl. Use a potato mashed or for to mash avocados. Stir in chopped pineapple, red onion, pineapple juice, salt and cayenne.

Notes- I used 4 sliced because I sliced them a little thinner (and I love pineapple!)

Very taste with a little bit of heat. I think when I make this again (and I will!) I’ll add a serrano or jalapeno just to make it a little hotter!

The recipe came from a Better Homes and Garden special interest magazine on Mexican food.
