Since it was officially the first day of summer this past week and the 4th of July is only a few days away, I wanted to share one of my family’s favorite summer snacks. It is a splendid guacamole recipe, that is slightly more fattening and 10 times more flavorful. You will never look at or make guac the same again. Make sure to bookmark this page, so you can bring it to all of your 4th of July BBQs and summer parties!
What you will need:
3-4 Ripened Avocados
Cherry Tomatoes (halved or sliced)
Red Onion (chopped)
Garlic Gloves (minced)
Salt/Garlic Salt/Himalayan Pink Salt
Bacon (1/2 to 1 lb, whatever amount you desire)
Tortilla Chips of your choice
Before we start, we need to prepare the bacon. There are many ways to cook bacon, but for this recipe throw some tinfoil on a baking sheet and lay as many strips of bacon that will fit on the sheet. Turn the oven up to 350 -400 degrees, and let your bacon simmer until it’s how you like it. (I love some crispy bacon, that melts in your mouth. It makes it easier to chop too.)
Now let’s guac and roll!
Cut the avocados in half, remove large pit in the center, and using a spoon or preferred method, remove the contents into a large mixing bowl.
On a cutting board, slice the cherry tomatoes, finely chop the red onion, and mince the garlic.
Add sliced tomatoes, chopped onions, and minced garlic to the bowl.
Using a fork and a knife, cut mixture multiple times to divide the pieces of avocado into smaller portions, while still maintaining a chunky consistency.
With the mixture still appearing chunky, cut a lemon or lime in half and squeeze over the top. This will add additional flavor and help with prolonging the wonderful green color of the guacamole. (Make sure to avoid getting any of the lemon/lime seeds into the mixture.)
Time to mix it all up!
Looking and tasting pretty delicious, but we aren’t done yet!
Place the crispy bacon on a cutting board, and chop into small pieces.
Add to the bowl and whip it up!
Add some bacon to the top, and you’re all set to enjoy this delicious guac recipe.
Let me know how it goes if you make it this weekend. Cheers!
