Corn, sweet corn….I can’t stop adding it to anything and everything.  And you know, I haven’t boiled one single ear yet?  I’m grilling it like there’s no tomorrow.  

I love to rub ears of corn with paprika street corn style like I did for my Mexican Street Corn Salad, which is the best side dish ever in my opinion.  πŸ™‚

Since I love corn with avocado and black beans so much, I decided to merge them into my favorite dip ever — guacamole.  I make my homemade guacamole a minimum of 4 times a week, because my husband happens to love it too.

My husband couldn’t care less about having his guacamole loaded with add-ins — he’s fine with just straight up avocado with plenty of lime and chunks of fresh tomato.  

I used to feel that way too, but once I ventured out by adding ingredients like chopped red onion, cilantro, mango, and even tomatillos, I realized that plain guacamole wants to grow up to be loaded guacamole.  

Really, it does. πŸ™‚

I served this street corn guacamole with my favorite chips, but it would be equally delicious as a condiment for tacos, burrito bowls or enchiladas!

How to make Street Corn Guacamole

This guacamole couldn’t be easier to make!

  • Grill the corn.  Preheat the grill.  Rub the corn with paprika and grill for 12-15  minutes, turning often, until nice and charred.  Remove from heat and cut the corn from the cob.
  • Prepare the guacamole.  Place the avocado, oil and lime juice in a medium bowl and toss gently to combine.  Add the corn, black beans, tomato, red onion, jalapeΓ±o, cilantro and salt and pepper to taste, and stir well.

Recipe notes

  • Frozen roasted corn is a great substitute, and using leftover boiled or canned corn may be used to save time as well. Simply heat in a skillet with the paprika!
  • Customize this recipe with whatever ingredients that you have on hand.
  • Street corn guacamole is best enjoyed the day that it’s made.

For the street corn:

  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 ear of corn, husked and silks removed or 1/2 cup canned or frozen (thawed if frozen)

For the guacamole:

  • 2 large avocados
  • 1/2 tablespoon canola oil
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 small tomato, seeded, and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 small jalapeΓ±o, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro


    Prepare the street corn:

    1. Preheat the grill to medium high. Rub the ear of corn with the paprika, then place on the grill. Grill for about 12-15 minutes, turning about every 3 minutes, or until nicely charred. Remove from heat and let stand until cool enough to handle.
    2. Place the corn on a cutting board one ear at a time, and place on it's side. Using a sharp knife, cut the kernels from the top down on one side, then turn and continue removing the kernels until all of them have been removed. Place the corn in a medium bowl.

    Prepare the guacamole:

    1. Halve the avocados and remove the pits. Scoop out the flesh with a spoon, and place in a bowl. Roughly chop the avocado with a knife against the side of the bowl until it's in small chunks. Add the canola oil and lime juice, and stir gently to combine. Add the corn, black beans, tomato, red onion, jalapeño, cilantro, and salt and pepper to taste. Serve and enjoy!
