Chef Blaine Staniford at Grace in Fort Worth, Texas, is a master of Southwestern ingredients. Here he shares five smart new ways to elevate guacamole from boring to brilliant.

2. Sweet corn. Roasted on the cob and then cut off into guacamole, yellow corn kernels give dip texture and subtle sweetness.
