Charred Corn and Bacon Guacamole - a delicious and easy twist on the classic! A super simple guacamole recipe with grilled corn and bacon!

Hey guys, happy almost Friday! I’ve got your weekend plans right here! Make up a batch before you head to the beach or the pool or whatever

When my mom was here last week, I was trying to sell her on Texas and I was all, “Mangoes are only $.50 in the summer! And avocados are 3 for $1! THREE AVOCADOS FOR ONE DOLLAR!”

Didn’t convince her to move here and help me take care of all my kids but hey, it really is one of my favorite things about Texas.

So yeah, I’ve been buying avocados by the dozen it seems like and then all of a sudden, they’re all about to go bad and I’m forced to make a huge batch of guacamole and then eat it all myself since my kids won’t touch it.

Rough life, right?

Corn and Bacon Sauté - quick and delicious summer dinner idea! The sweet corn with the smoky bacon is so delicious!

You guys.

I’m obsessed with fresh corn right now. Is there anything better in summer than fresh sweet corn?

I made the most amazing ice cream yesterday. It was a sweet corn base and then I layered in crumbled homemade cornbread.

The best. I wish I could pass you a scoop because I know cornbread in ice cream sounds crazy. But trust me.

What’s your favorite way to use fresh corn?

I’m also currently obsessed with very quickly cooking it with bacon and green onions. Which is exactly what this Fresh Corn and Bacon Sauté. You aren’t going to believe how easy it is!

Homemade Caramel Corn Ice Cream Recipe

Second corn recipe this week! 

You guys probably had no idea that I was so obsessed with fresh corn. And yeah, this ice cream starts with fresh corn.

Weird, right?

I never talk about my love of fresh summer corn here because typically we just grill it, spray it with butter, and sprinkle some salt on it. Easy easy and so good. But there’s no need for a recipe when you’re doing that. 

My love of corn is coming out this week.

Back when I lived in Alabama, I made frequent trips to the flea market because they had (probably still do?) a stand that did roasted corn and then they had, like, this bar of different seasonings you could sprinkle on it. 

Omg, you guys. My favorite thing in the world. Last time we went home I told my husband we had to get some before we left and he was all, “You really want to spend your time at home at the flea market?”

Uhhh yeah, eat corn, look for Pyrex. Does he know me at all?

If you are into sweet corn like me, you are going to be obsessed with this ice cream. So the ice cream itself is just corn flavored. But then at the end, you mix in some caramel sauce. And then you can top it with some real caramel corn if you like a little crunch in your ice cream like me. 

It’s so good.
