Ingredients

1 medium sweet onion, thinly sliced, cut in half
2 jalapeno chiles (3-inch/7.5 cm), cut lengthwise in half, seeded
4 ripe large avocados cut in half, pitted and peeled
3 plum (Roma) tomatoes, cut lengthwise in half, seeded
1/4 cup (50 mL) chopped fresh cilantro
2 tbsp (25 mL) fresh lime juice
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp (5 mL) coarse (kosher or sea) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cumin
1/4 cup (50 mL) Queso Cotijo or Feta cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Spray 18x14-inch piece of heavy-duty foil or grill pan with cooking spray. Place onion and chiles on foil or pan. Place on grill over medium heat.
  • 2 Cover grill; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until onion and chiles are crisp-tender and just beginning to brown. Add avocados and tomatoes to the onion and chiles. Cover grill; cook about 5 minutes longer or until avocados and tomatoes are hot, turning once halfway through grilling.
  • 3 Remove vegetables from grill to cutting board. Finely chop chiles and coarsely chop remaining vegetables. In medium bowl, place vegetables, cilantro, lime juice, garlic salt and cumin; mix gently until combined. Stir in the cheese. Serve warm. If desired, serve with tortilla chips.
