If the pellet smoker is already being used for chicken, pork, or salmon, why not make a batch of smoked tomatoes? Smoked avocado guacamole goes with chips, salsa, or crostini. It makes a great spread on toasted bread or bagels! Put that smoker to good use and smoke some tomatoes alongside a tuna, trout, or other fish. Or make them with a whole chicken or smoked sausage for a one-pan meal!

What We Love About Guacamole with Smoked Tomatoes

Guacamole is a staple recipe in many kitchens, but we love this recipe because the simple addition of smoked tomatoes lends a depth of mildly smokey flavor that tastes so good. We like it as a spread for tuna salad, BLTs, or a grilled veggie wrap! Or scoop onto a bed of field greens for a low-calorie salad!

We also like to serve guacamole with smoked tomatoes with corn chips, wonton crisps, and jalapeno corn muffins. And they’re great with pork carnitas, or on the side of our famous Mexican lasagna. The kids love guac with tacos and burritos too!

What’s in it?

Fresh avocados are the foundation for any great guacamole recipe, but we added pickled jalapenos and green chilis for a bit of a kick! The best tomatoes for guacamole are ultra-ripe, firm, and full of flavor. In this version, the subtle smoky flavor of smoked tomatoes matches very well with the creamy avocados and the spicy seasonings. Squeeze the seeds out for a thicker guacamole, or keep seeds in for a smoother dip.

No smoked tomatoes? Try a can of fire roasted tomatoes or dice up some regular tomatoes instead. For fire roasted tomatoes, reserve a little liquid and add as needed to get the consistency you love.

A splash of lemon juice brings out the brightly flavored ingredients like garlic, cilantro, jalapenos, and green chilis. An acidic “neutral” marries all the flavors together.

How to Cut a Tomato for Guacamole

  • Smoked tomatoes for guacamole are usually firm and bursting at the seams with smoky, juicy goodness! We like to dice them small so the pieces blend well in the guacamole.
  • Another way to process tomatoes is to put them in a small, countertop blender. Puree the smoked tomatoes and add to the guacamole mix for a smoother spread.
