Spicy Roasted Tomato Guacamole

So I have officially decided that along with soup, beef, and ice cream {which melts as your photographing it}. Guacamole is super hard to make look “pretty” in a picture.

I mean really, it is mushed up green stuff and then when combined with roasted cherry tomatoes {like in this particular guacamole} there are now red seeds and swirls going through the green mushy stuff. UGhhh!!! Just when I was feeling good about my photography.

Oh well, sometimes the things that don’t always look amazeballs sure to do taste amazeballs and THIS is one of those dishes!

This Spicy Guacamole is killer! The flavor from the sweet roasted cherry tomatoes mixed with the heat from the roasted jalapeño will blow your mind. But why stop there? So I topped it off with a little citrus from lime juice AND orange juice. I know… orange juice?!? Just trust me, it adds so much to the dish and leaves people with a “whats in that guacamole” question after their finished. I topped mine with a little crumbled queso fresco, because both my boys love CHEESE. But you can totally omit it if you choose

How to Make The Best Guacamole

To get started, preheat oven to 400º. Roast 1/3 cup of  cherry tomatoes and 1 whole jalepeno for 20 minutes.

    Have you ever heard that food stylist {like food companies} used color shortening to avoid the melting ice cream mess? You did an awesome job making the green mush look amazeballs Krista!!

    1. Krista

      haha.. thanks Lisa1

      Really… wow totally didn’t know that about color shortening! That amazing. Some of the tricks they use are pretty cool, I’m just too lazy to do them because I’m usually serving the food right after i shoot it. 🙂

  2. Zainab @ Blahnik Baker

    Oh no, I just finished writing a post and I used “amazeballs”! I must be picking up the language of NNIBs 🙂
    We love guacamole here too and this looks delicious. Your pictures are beautiful!! I just shot ice cream this weekend and it was a melting mess. I need more practice.

    1. Krista

      haha… guess we are all sounding the same. 🙂 Thanks on the foodie props!

      Oh.. ice cream.. yup been there. Melty mess and all, the fun part is the clean up afterwards. 🙂

  3. Kelly

    We are big guacamole fans and I love your spiced up recipe! It sounds amazeballs to me and can’t wait to give it a try! Pinning 🙂 Hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend Krista!

  4. Ginnie

    I love the idea of adding roasted tomatoes to guacamole – can’t wait to try this! Your photos look great btw and have me craving this, but I totally know what you mean;)

    1. Krista

      Awww. thanks Ginnie, glad my photos still made you hungry. 🙂 Hope you get a chance to try it. Have a great rest of the day girl and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Mike Luque

    On please, Krista. Your pictures are great. Very mouthwatering.
    Question about the jalapeno. If you keep the seeds in, it’s even hotter, correct? (my friends and I like HOT.)

    1. Krista

      Thanks Mike! 🙂

      Yeah, if you keep the seeds in and use the whole jalapeno instead of half you will definitely have a hot spicy guacamole. Just be prepared with a beer or water to chase it down! 😉

  6. Chris @ Shared Appetite

    Oh man, I so so so LOVE guacamole. Like, it’s one of my favorite foods. I’ve never thought of roasting cherry tomatoes and the jalapeno, and adding orange juice… so creative! Definitely going to try that. And isn’t it so super annoying when foods are hard to photograph?! You know it tastes good… you know people will love it… but then the food just doesn’t cooperate on camera! I totally feel your pain!

    1. Krista

      You will love it, I am all about roasting any kind of vegetable because the flavor that comes out is always to die for! Hope you enjoy it. 🙂

      Glad you can relate on the annoying foods to photograph department, makes me not feel alone!

    1. Krista

      Yah for a fellow guacamole lover! 🙂 Thanks for the pin Chelsea, hope you have a great weekend as well and soak up the rest of the Olympics!

    1. Krista

      Great question, Lara. No special instructions. You could season them with a little olive oil or sea salt to add more flavor, and maybe put them on a silicone baking mat for easy cleanup. 🙂 Hope that helps girl!

  7. Deb@ Cooking on the Front Burner

    Krista, the picture(s) are amazing…. but I agree some foods are harder to photograph than others… And I just recently decided I like guac! The first XXX number of years of my life I did not. This one looks fantastic with all the flavors you added – pinned!

    1. Krista

      What?!? How could you not like guacamole! Crazy girl! Well, I’m glad you have finally realized whats good for you. 🙂 Thanks for the pin Deb, hope you get a chance to give this one a try.

  8. Mary Frances

    I already had a major thing for guacamole – this spicy tomato version is calling my name! I bet roasting them gives it so much more flavor. I’ve got my chips ready!
