Bacon Guacamole

My inspiration for this recipe came as I was sitting in my living room watching tv. No joke.

This weekend, I was watching a show about Kevin Bacon and his family tree. I also happened to be wishing I had some guacamole. I know. See where this is going, don’t you?

Thinking about how cool the last name Bacon must be.

Guacamole would be so great right now.

Bacon is such a yummy last name. And funny.

But not as funny as a last name of Guacamole might be.

Hey! I could make guacamole and add bacon! Yum. A perfect marriage! I bet his wife Kyra Sedgwick wouldn’t even be jealous! I can’t believe no one has thought of this!

Alas. Someone had. Many someones.
A quick Internet query had broken the news: my original idea was, yet again, already invented. Invented and known by, apparently, pretty much everyone but me…

I know, I know. Nothing new under the sun. But that doesn’t stop me (and a lot of other people) from hoping and trying.

So anyways. I went with it and just made my guac like I normally do, and added some crispy bacon. Flavor overload! This is my way of doing bacon guac.

To start:
Fry up 6 or 7 slices of your favorite bacon until crispy. Pat them dry.
Eat 1 slice to make sure it’s up to par. Quality control, is what my mom calls this.
Chop coarsely the remaining 5-6 slices.

Take the diced Roma tomatoes, diced sweet onion, and chopped garlic cloves and combine it all in a large bowl. Add salt, and add the lime juice to all of it. Stir in the chopped cilantro.

Stir it all up and let it rest while you seed and chop the avocados. Add the avocado and stir to your preferred texture.

I like mine with bites of whole avocado, so I reserve the last avocado and cut it like this inside it’s shell before I gently fold it in.

Coarsely chop the bacon and stir it into the mixture, reserving one chopped slice for garnish.

INGREDIENTS:
The ingredients and amounts I use (please use your own preferred amounts for guac – this is just as a guideline). Also…this recipe makes a lot, so feel free to reduce the quantities.

2 Roma tomatoes, diced
1/4 C diced sweet onion (I used a Vidalia)
1-2 jalepenos, chopped finely
3 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1/2 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
1 tsp kosher salt
1 small lime
6 slices of bacon
6 small avocados

Next time you make guac, try adding some bacon!

    Yummy!  I would have to sacrifice myself and eat all the guac so it doesn't get soggy the next day. But then again is bacon ever bad?
