Roasted Pineapple Guacamole

I have been noticing a lot of recipes including grilled pineapple in their guacamole... and I thought it would be an interesting combination of flavors, and indeed they are-- its so tasty! The roasted pineapple chunks offer a sweet and citrus taste to the oh so decadent avocado. I prefer my guacamole on the chunkier side as I am still getting using to liking creamy stuff, but feel free to mix it to suit your taste-buds.

Serves well with tortilla chips of course, or on top of those Mexican tacos, or your BBQ'd burger!

Roasted Pineapple Guacamole: (serves 2)
1 cup pineapple chunks (fresh or canned)
1 large avocado
1/2 lime, juiced
1/4 t chili powder or cayenne
Dash of paprika
Pinch of Salt
Dash of Pepper
2 onion slices, finely diced
Small handful of cilantro, chopped
1 Serrano pepper, seeds removed and finely diced

Place pineapple chunks on a slightly greased pan (spritzed w/ oil) and put in the oven (I used a toaster oven) and roast on 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cut the avocado in half and remove the pit and scoop it into a bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork, add the lime juice, and continue to mash until there is little to no chunks depending on how you like it. Next, add the spices and mix well. Toss into the mixture onions, cilantro, pepper, and pineapple and lightly fold until well combined. Serve with tortilla chips, or add as a topping to a taco or burger.
