Test! Roasted Corn-Bacon Guacamole directions
Advance preparation
Choose roasting method (click here for suggestions). Select corn. Roast corn. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels off fresh cobs.

Safely cut kernels off fresh cobs
Start by cutting the cob in half crosswise and stand it on its flat, cut end in a bowl. Then, use a sharp chef’s knife to cut kernels off the ear, one side at a time, using a sawing motion. Be careful not to cut into the cob; cut only about the top 1/2 to 2/3 of the kernels.

Then flip your knife over and run the dull side down the length of the ear, to press out the rest of the scrapings and the milk.

Prepare dip
Reserve some of the roasted corn and cooked bacon for garnish,

Mash the avocados. Combine with the roasted corn and other dip ingredients through cilantro. Season to taste with lime juice, salt and pepper.

Garnish top with the reserved corn and bacon.

Serve Roasted Corn-Bacon Guacamole with blue corn tortilla chips.
