I struggle with this blog…I go to enough parties, I love making dips, I for sure eat enough, so why am I not posting more, making more, and eating more??  Only answer I can come up with is TIME…..it’s everyone’s enemy, there is just not enough of it in our days, weeks, months……so I give you something today that takes NO time, but makes everyone happy.

Living in Southern California, you get used to not only amazing Mexican food, but also really fresh avocado, when you put them together you get Guacamole….but what else can you put into a bowl of this mashed up green joy?? BACON!!  There is a new trend happening all over the US, restaurants are throwing whatever they can find into Guacamole, some say don’t fix what isn’t broken…I say load it on.  Everything from Lobster, to prosciutto, to crab, and to my favorite crispy bacon.



3 large ripe avocado’s

1 medium tomato seeds removed

3 strips of bacon

1/4 cup minced red onion

1 TSP fresh lime juice

1/2 TSP smoked paprika

1/4 TSP ground chipotle

1/4 TSP kosher salt

black pepper to taste


I am pretty sure if you know me, you know that I don’t follow instructions well, so I doubled this recipe, but tripled the bacon 🙂

Half avocado’s, pit, and scoop them into a bowl, & mash!

Cook bacon until crispy and put into your trusty food processor

Add everything to the bowl …


Fold everything together, so that you have your desired texture…I like mine on the chunkier side



Tortilla chips

This dip took no longer that 5 minutes to put together, the only thing that was time-consuming, was someone was eating all the bacon, so I had to keep making me…not naming any name, but I did go to a spinning class immediately after making this.
