Friends, when I think of “guacamole” I never think of myself sitting and eating it alone.

No, I think guacamole is meant to be shared, because it’s tasty and fun to eat. You may have already tried my Strawberry Guacamole, Pineapple Black Bean Guacamole or this Cheesy Enchilada Dip!

How do you make guacamole?

Start with these fresh ingredients!

  • Peel and mash avocados in a serving bowl. Stir in red onion, garlic, tomato, lime juice, salt and pepper.

How healthy is guacamole?

Chips and guac are a classic, but the chips aren’t quite as healthy as the guac. Use veggies like cucumbers, carrots, celery, or bell peppers for a dipping stick, instead of chips.

Like I mentioned, I put a spin on traditional guac by adding poblano peppers, shallots, and even bacon!

It’s out of this world delicious! My friend Mary makes a killer Green Chili Gucamole recipe, too!

Super Easy Bacon Guacamole Recipe

Make sure your avocados are perfectly ripe. Unfortunately, I had to toss two when making this recipe, because they were over-ripe. Bummer, I know. Has this happened to you, too? I always feel bad, but I don’t want to affect the flavor of the dip by using any that are yucky inside.

And did I mention, BakerMama has a delicious The Best Blender Guacamole recipe?

How do you find the best avocados?

To find the perfect avocados for this dip, make sure they are soft and not rock hard. You can test them by gently pressing the outside to see if it feels soft. If it’s genuinely soft, the avocado is ripe and perfect. If it feels very soft, it’s over-ripe.

The easiest way to cook bacon is to either bake it in the oven or microwave it.

How do I ripen an avocado in the microwave?

Here’s a trick for under-ripe avocados. Place the avocado in the microwave and cook for 30 seconds on a 50% setting. Remove the avocado from the microwave; give it a squeeze. If the avocado is still hard, microwave for an additional 30 seconds. Once it’s soft, it’s ready for guac!

Also, I do not like store-bought guacamole. It has a weird taste, and it never seems as fresh and good as homemade. Do I hear a big amen?

The addition of crispy bacon is perfect, and bound to be a hit at your next party!
