Pina Colada Guacamole

Pina Colada Guacamole
When I think about tacos I often think about guacamole and even when I do not include the guacamole in the tocos I like to serve it on the side along with tortilla chips. It was no different when I made the jerk shrimp tacos and since I already had a Caribbean theme going I thought that it would be fun to continue and do a pina colada guacamole! The basic idea was to take a simple guacamole and add all of the flavours of a pina colada including pineapple, coconut and rum. Adding the pineapple was as easy as chopping some up and adding it to the guacamole and since I had the grill going anyways, I grilled it first. The coconut came in the form of coconut cream and the guacamole was finished off with a splash of rum. All in all I would have to say that this tropical inspired pina colada guacamole is amazing! The sweet and juicy pineapple works really well in guacamole and the coconut cream make the guacamole even creamier, if that is even possible, along with adding a hint of coconut and of course you really can't go wrong with a touch of rum!

Tip: If you cannot find coconut cream, open a can of coconut milk without shaking it and use the thick white part on the top which is coconut cream.

Tacos and Guac are synonomous with eachother - but Pina Colado Guac just pushed me over edge!! That sounds utterly heavenly!

Hey Kevin,

Did you know that many restaurants make avocado margaritas? That's just to say that the idea of mixing avocados with sweet alcoholic beverages isn't off the mark.

Now I have another recipe to contemplate this weekend! I'm overdue for some tortilla chip snacking anyway. And again, you made me hungry right as I'm getting ready for dinner.
