It was almost a year ago when I met the love of my life… Bacon Guacamole, haha!
I showed up to my friends annual Comic Con Party (yes, in San Diego, that’s a thing!) and low and behold, there it was, delicious creamy guacamole, filled with crispy scrumptious bacon!
My first thought was “get in my belly!”, my second thought was “why didn’t I ever think of this?”
Somehow it took me almost a year to get my own version of the recipe on to Little Leopard Book, but here it is, in all it’s glory!
- 4 avocados (peeled & de-seeded)
- 1 red chili pepper (de-seeded & minced)
- 1 tsp chipotle powder
- ½ tsp cumin
- ½ tsp paprika
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 3 tbsp fresh cilantro
- 2 slices bacon (cooked & crumbled)
Add the avocados to a large bowl and mash with a fork. Add the remaining ingredients.
Mix together well. Serve immediately or place in the refrigerator covered until ready to serve.
The combination of spice, flavor & crunch from the bacon is unreal!
I might even dare to say that this guacamole gives my Grilled Pineapple Tomatillo Guacamole a run for it’s money as the best guacamole ever!
♣ Vegetarian Option: Omit the bacon to make a vegetarian chipotle guacamole.
