I already have a few hot melted cheese dips planned for the upcoming Super Bowl party but I also want to include something a little on the healthier side and guacamole is perfect party food! The basic guacamole is pretty darn irresistible but I cannot help but tinker with it by adding different things with an example being the blue cheese guacamole that I made not too long ago. This time however I was thinking about a bacon guacamole; if bacon and avocado go great together in sandwiches, and they do, then why not add bacon to guacamole?
This recipe for bacon guacamole is pretty much the recipe for guacamole with crispy crumbled bacon added but I made one other small change by increasing the amount of tomato as tomato and bacon are also a great flavour combo. I have to say that bacon guyacamole is by far my favourite version of guacamole so far and it will make a welcome addition on the day of the big game! (Is there anything that bacon does not go with?)
Just look at those beautiful green avocados!
I am sure that a bacon and blue cheese guacamole would also be amazing!
Cool and creamy guacamole with crispy and salt bacon makes for perfect snacking satisfaction.
