Loaded Roasted Chile Guacamole

Hey, there.

Baby’s due in a little over a week, and all I’ve wanted to do lately is sit on the couch with a big bowl of something. What that “something” is changes by the hour. Sometimes it’s watermelon. Or fresh pineapple. Or ice cream. Or THIS guacamole and a big bag of chips.

I heart guacamole a whole bunch. I love both my classic version and my lazy version. When I tried this chunky, loaded, full of chile & lime version, I knew it wasn’t going to last long when the rest of the family started eating on it.

(We all heart guac.)

Totally should have stashed this one in the back of the fridge for an afternoon “snack” the next day.

Loaded Roasted Chile Guacamole


3 fresh New Mexico, Anaheim, or poblano chiles
1 medium lime
3 medium ripe avocadoes, pitted and peeled
3 green onions, chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/2 cup medium-diced fresh tomato
2 radishes, slivered
2-3 T crumbled feta cheese
chips or vegetables, for serving


Roast chiles under an oven broiler, on a grill, or directly on a gas burner. Turn occasionally until outside of pepper is covered in black, charred spots. This should take 8-10 minutes. When chiles are roasted, place in a bowl, cover, and set aside to steam for a few minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel, seed, and chop the chiles. (The skin should be easy to remove if you make sure to let them steam.)

Zest and juice the lime into a medium bowl. Add avocado and coarsely mash. Stir in the scallions, cilantro, cumin, and salt. Season to taste with salt and lime juice. Fold in the tomatoes and roasted chiles.

Transfer to a serving bowl and top with slivered radishes and feta.

    I love guacamole and have a couple avocados on hand at the mount, so am going to give it a try. Thanks for the great recipe. I am sure this is a thrilling and anxious time for you waiting for your beautiful new baby to make their appearance. Blessings for this time of anticipation.

    I would have no trouble consuming the whole bowl of this by myself, with a spoon. Looks wonderful! And only a week left? Wow, time has zoomed by. Best of luck and many blessings to you! xo

      Thanks Cassie! It’s actually gone by sort of fast for me, too. (luckily…)

    (a) I totally don’t know how you’re still posting and/or cooking ANYTHING if you’re due in a week. I’d be eating all the ice cream I could get my hands on!
    (b) This guac would be a close second to all that ice cream! Love it.

      Oh it’s nesting. :) Before 3PM I feel like cleaning my whole house and painting all the rooms again. After 3PM I’m basically a lump on the couch. Or on Facebook.

    Can’t wait to to try this, though I love your other guacamole recipe. :) I’ve made it a bunch and love it every time. P.S. SO excited that your little one is almost here (or maybe here already…it’s been a few days). :) How in the world are you still acting so normal?

    Since I’m reading this 5 days late, I wonder where you are? Holding a new baby or another big bowl of this incredible sounding guac? (Either way sounds good to me!)
