How To Make Tomato and Bacon Guacamole For The Big Game

The super bowl is this weekend, and it might as well be a national holiday. People plan for this, throw intense parties, and treat it like a very ceremonious event.

The part that I enjoy most about super bowl weekend is the food. And my love of avocados means that I always show up with a batch of guacamole to whatever viewing party I attend.

It’s relatively quick, easy to make, and perfect for snacking in between the game. Plus, it’s guaranteed to be gone by half time, which means no leftovers to worry about taking home.

 

Ingredients:

  • 5 strips medium-thick bacon
  • 3-4 medium-large ripe avocados
  • 2 canned chipotle chiles en adobo to taste
  • 1 medium-large round, ripe tomato
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • Salt to taste

In a large skillet, cook the slices of bacon in a single layer over medium heat, turning them occasionally, until crispy and browned. Should be about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels, cool, then coarsely crumble.
