  • 1 head garlic
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • 2 large avocados
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 jalapenos seeded if desired


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Cut the top 1/4 inch off the garlic. Place garlic on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle 1 teaspoon olive oil over the top. Wrap in the foil and roast for 40 - 45 minutes or until browned and soft. Remove from oven. Allow to cool. Use a fork to remove cloves. Mash together in a bowl.
  • While the garlic is cooling, turn on the broiler and broil jalapenos 5 - 6 minutes or until the skin has blackened. Transfer to a paper bag and allow to sweat for 10 minutes. Peel the skins from the jalapenos and dice them.
  • In a bowl, mash avocados. Mix in mashed garlic cloves, diced jalapenos and remaining ingredients. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Serve.
