Bacon Guacamole

I love a good guacamole!

I’ve already posted my BASIC version of guacamole, but this one adds a salty and savory element:  bacon.

I know that there are a lot of bacon lovers out there, so make this for an afternoon get-together with friends or for snacking while watching a movie or a game.  If you want to make it vegetarian, use a vegetarian bacon, which is also delicious in this guacamole.  Give it a try!

Bacon Guacamole

Bacon Guacamole (Guacamole con Tocino)

6 bacon slices

2 large ripe avocados (Hass variety preferred), halved, seed removed and peeled

¼ cup white onion, finely chopped

2 serrano chiles, stemmed and finely chopped (without seeds for a milder version)

2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped

1 tablespoon lime juice

1 Roma tomato, seeded and chopped

Salt, to taste

In a skillet, cook the bacon until crispy.  Drain on paper towels and let cool.  When it is cool, crumble or chop the bacon to small bits.

In a medium-size bowl, add the avocado and mash, using a fork or a potato masher.  Add the onion, chiles, cilantro, lime juice and bacon crumbles and stir.

Add the diced tomato and stir in carefully.  Taste for salt and adjust, if needed.
