So, I need to give full disclosure here. I hate football. I’ve never been much of a fan.
However, I used to love playing touch football on weekends. I had a tendency to get totally carried away though. One time I forgot it was touch and tackled the heck out of one of my besties.
I don’t think she was very happy with me. Honestly, I got really overzealous and think I scared the laid back players. Apparently, calm Kim turns into spastic and violent Kim when sports are involved.
I’ve always been a tomboy. I grew up with two older brothers so I know how to play most sports. We were really rough and tumble kind of kids growing up.
So, it’s surprising I don’t care for watching sports on TV. It’s a weird quirk, I suppose.
That said, if you hand me a basketball, I’m going to have to wipe the floor with you. It’s just how I roll.
My husband has never won a game against me. I guess kicking your hubby’s butt occasionally is good for your marriage.
So are snack. Lots, and lots of good snacks. Like this grilled guacamole!
Honestly, I think the food is the biggest draw for me when it comes to sports. Any time we host a party or go to a game I’m all about the food.
Whether it’s a great chili dog or some kick ass nachos, I’m in it for the food. This grilled guacamole is something we go crazy over. It’s so darn good!

Places to stalk Kiss my Smoke
- 2 ripe avocados
- 1/2 sweet onion minced
- 2 shallots diced
- 2 tbsp butter for pan
- 2 chipotle peppers in adobo chopped finely, no juice
- 1 tbsp fresh cilantro finely chopped
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 pinch pepper
- 1/2 large tomato if you don't have ripe use 1 or 2 san marzano tomatoes, chopped, no juice
- 1 tbsp olive oil for drizzling
- Preheat your grill to a medium high heat.
- Prep you avocados by cutting them in half and removing the pits. Brush generously with olive oil.
- Grab a grill safe pan, I have a cast iron pan I use for my grill only. Pop the butter in the pan. Toss your onions and shallots inside.
- Carefully bring your pan of onions and shallots, and also your oil brushed avocados to the hot grill.
- Place the pan on first. Allow to cook for about 3 to 5 minutes. You want them to soften and start to brown.
- Now pop you avocados on the grill cut side down. Leave them there for about 1 to 2 minutes. You want them to char just a bit.
- Carefully remove your hot pan and your avocados off the grill. Turn your grill off.
- Take your avocado tool and carefully scrape out the inside. Discard the outside.
- Mash the avocado gently with a fork.
- If your onions and shallots have excess oil you can drain them. If not you can transfer them to the bowl with mashed avocados.
- Toss in the rest of the ingredients and mix gently.
- Serve immediately if possible. If not serving immediately you should keep the tomato out till you are ready to serve, cover with plastic wrap, making sure the plastic is pressed right against the guacamole. Guacamole discolours quickly if not wrapped properly.
- Serve with a big old game day smile!
Now be confident and get your grill on!
