  1. Allow the grill to preheat for 10 – 15 minutes with the lid closed.
  2. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (500° to 550°F).
  3. Brush the grill grates clean.
  4. Grill the jalapeno over direct medium high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until the skin is blackened on all sides, about 10 minutes. Turn as needed.
  5. Transfer to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap or foil to seal. Let stand for about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the jalapeno from the bowl and peel off the black skin.
  7. Cut the jalapeno in half and remove the seeds, leave seeds in for hotter Guacamole. Cut into ¼” pieces.
  8. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit. Leaving the avocado in the peel, use a butter knife and make 4 cuts horizontal and 4 cuts vertical.
  9. Over a mixing bowl, use a spoon and remove the avocado from the peel.
  10. Add the grilled jalapeno, red onion and cilantro. Squeeze each half of lime juice into the bowl.
  11. Use a fork to mash as you mix.
  12. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.
  13. Scrape guacamole to the bottom of the bottom and top tightly with plastic wrap. It will discolor over time if not sealed.
