  • 2 heads garlic
  • 1 tablespoons olive oil
  • kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large avocados
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice freshly squeezed, more or less to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 clove garlic squeezed through a garlic press or minced


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400°.
  • Cut off the top third of the two heads of garlic to expose all of the garlic cloves inside.
  • Place into oven-safe dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a couple pinches of kosher salt and a pinch of black pepper.
  • Cover with foil and roast for 45 minutes. Remove and let cool before handling.
  • Halve the avocados, remove the pit and scoop out the flesh into a large bowl. Squeeze in the juice from the limes and add in the cooled roasted garlic cloves [either squeeze the garlic heads over the bowl or pick out with a fork], mash the two together until slightly chunky guacamole starts to form.
  • Lastly add in the chopped cilantro, fresh garlic and season it with a couple pinches of salt. Stir that all together and serve along side some corn tortilla chips.
