Does your guacamole need a summer makeover? Try this different twist on guacamole – this Grilled Guacamole Stuffed Tortilla Recipe will be a hit of the backyard BBQ!



  • 2 avocados
  • 1 small red onion or half of a medium red onion
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes (preferably yellow)
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 4 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 small (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • juice from 1/2 lime
  • 2/3 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper
  • hot sauce (such as Tabasco)


  1. Halve the avocados and remove the pits. Remove the skins and cut the flesh into thick slices. Cut the onion into thin half-moon rings. Cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters, and the roma tomato into chunks about the same size as the cherry tomato pieces.
  2. Lay the tortillas on a work surface and layer the avocados, onion, tomatoes, mozzarella and garlic. Squeeze the lime over the top and sprinkle with cilantro, salt and pepper. Sprinkle on a bit of hot sauce. Roll up the tortillas and secure with a toothpick.
  3. Heat a grill to medium-low. Grill the tortillas for about 3 minutes (it’s best if they are grilled over indirect heat), turning the rolls halfway through the cooking time. The cheese will be melted and the outsides of the tortilla slightly charred when they are done.
  4. Serve immediately.
