Roasted Garlic Guacamole

October 12, 2009


A late night viewing of an episode of Rick Bayless’ Mexico One Dish at a Time was enough to give me a serious craving for salsa and guacamole – and a theme for the week, Mexican!

Did you know that you can “roast” garlic in a small frying pan on top of your stove? I had no idea. I’ve always seen recipes that instructed you to chop the top of a head of garlic off, drizzle with olive oil, wrap in foil, and bake for a good hour. It has always seemed like such a pain that I’ve rarely done it. Roasting on top of the stove takes ten minutes tops depending on your burner hat (I kept it fairly low so as not to burn the garlic while prepping other ingredients). The roasted tomatillo salsa uses a broiler method, take unpeeled cloves and place them 1-2″ from the broiler for about 8 minutes, turning halfway.
