Who is ready for Cinco de Mayo? Have you planned your menu yet? I couldn’t just let Cinco de Mayo pass without sharing a guacamole recipe. I mean really, is it Cinco de Mayo if there is no guacamole on the table? I think not. Any party though, isn’t really a party unless there is guacamole is involved. At least in my opinion anyway.
Now I love your regular guacamole with avocados, onion, garlic, lime and the such but every once in a while I like to switch things up a bit. And that is exactly what I did with this guacamole.
I have been meaning to try a roasted garlic guacamole for a while now because I love everything roasted garlic. But while I was prepping the garlic for the roasting, I looked over and saw the jalapeno sitting there and thought Why not? So I roasted that too.
Roasting the jalapeno added such a nice flavor. It quieted the heat just a little bit but there was still a bit of a kick to the guacamole which I loved. The roasted garlic also added a nice sweet garlic flavor. This takes just a bit more time to make then regular guacamole because you do have to roast the garlic but trust me, it’s totally worth it.

This looks so good. I love roasted garlic and I’m going shopping tomorrow and plan to buy a ton of jalapenos. I had such good luck freezing my red bell peppers I’m going to do it with jalapenos too. I have 4 jalapenos planted and they have blossoms but it will be awhile before my beloved peppers appear so I plan to be prepared with frozen ones.
