Bacon Guacamole Bites Recipe: A Food Marriage Made in Heaven

Yum! 14

guacamole bacon bitesThere are tasty ideas, and then there are mind-blowing ideas. This is the latter: Bacon guacamole bites. Basically, this is just guacamole sandwiched between two little pieces of bacon. I can't believe I hadn't thought of this myself. But it showed up in Runner's World magazine and now it's all I can think about. (I guess you'd need to be a runner to justify eating these bad boys?) 

We love bacon. We love guacamole. It's a match made in heaven! The new peanut butter cups. Right?!? I think these would make excellent Superbowl snacks, especially if everyone takes a few laps around the yard during halftime. But I'm making myself a few today just because. Here's a recipe.

Bacon Guacamole Bites adapted from Runner's World

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1/3 cup chopped onion
  • 1-2 serrano or jalapeño peppers, minced
  • Salt to taste (around 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 pounds very ripe avocados
  • 1 plum tomato
  • Juice of 1 lime

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut bacon into 1 or 2-inch pieces. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and arrange bacon so that no pieces overlap. Bake for 10 minutes, turn pieces over, and bake for another 5-10 minutes until done. Let pieces drain on paper towels.
  3. Meanwhile, make the guacamole. Put onion, peppers, and cilantro together in a bowl and crush together with the back of a spoon. (Or use a mortar and pestle or molcajete if you have one.) Add avocado, tomato, and lime juice and mash together with other ingredients with a fork. 
  4. Spoon about 1-2 teaspoons of guacamole on a piece of bacon and top with a second piece of bacon. Continue with the rest of the bacon and guacamole. Serve immediately.

This looks good, but sandwiching with bacon pieces sounds too time-consuming. I think I'll just crumble the bacon on the guacamole. Mmmm. :)

This would be good for me to share with hubby...he would eat the bacon, me the guac. He doesn't eat anything green.

That looks really good!  Sadly, bacon gives me heartburn now. :(
