Bacon Guacamole

baconguac

I’m seriously kicking myself for not getting into guacamole while I was still in diapers. I’ve been the pickiest eater since before I can remember, and guacamole definitely was on the list of ‘Things I refused to eat before I ever even tried them,’ up until about 2 years ago.

Mind. Blown.

This green goop is delicious! I’m having a huge love affair with avocados. Pudding, popsicles, guac, burgers, salads. It’s one of the most versatile fruits I can think of. And they’re loaded with tons of healthy omega 3 fatty acids and fiber.

Speaking of foods I detest, you might notice there aren’t raw tomatoes (or any type of tomatoes) listed in my Bacon Guacamole recipe. That’s because I avoid tomatoes like the plague. Always have, and I probably always will. The only way I enjoy tomatoes is in ketchup (sparingly) or pureed in an Italian tomato sauce. I know, I’m lame.

But you know what’s not lame? My bf buying me this awesome mortar and pestle so I can continue to make awesome Bacon Guacamole in style. And mofongo. LOTS of mofongo. Kthanks.
