Now that it’s corn season, Top Chef Master and America’s best-known master of Mexican cuisine, Chef Rick Bayless, has put a new spin on guacamole. His special ingredients: grilled corn, from the season’s bounty, and poblano chile.

1. PREHEAT gas grill to medium or prepare a charcoal grill. Grill corn, turning occasionally, until golden on all sides, about 5 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut kernels from the cob; remove to a large bowl.
2. GRILL the chile and tomatillos, turning until skins are nicely charred, about 10 minutes. When cool enough to handle, peel the charred skin from the poblanos with your fingers. Remove stem, core and seeds; chop chile and remove to the bowl.
3. CHOP the tomatillos finely, capturing the juices, and add to the bowl. Add avocado, onion, cilantro and salt. Coarsely mash avocado and gently stir to combine all ingredients.
