Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole


Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole
Adapted from The Best Thing I Ever Ate, on Food Network

Yes, you read that right.  And yes, it’s awesome.  Unless, of course, you hate blue cheese, as does my roommate (that’s what I choose to call him when he makes poor life decisions such as this).  But no worries, that just means more for me and the other sane people out there!

I made this gem for our big Labor Day BBQ and it was a huge hit.  People tended to take one bite, shoot me a quizzical look, and then exclaim “Oh my God, is there BACON in this?!?”  And then dive back in for more…

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe avocados, pitted and mashed
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, smashed and minced
  • 2 large Roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 2 jalapenos, chopped (seeds in if you like extra heat – we do!)
  • 3 Tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 6 strips bacon, cooked until crispy and chopped into bits
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh sage, finely chopped

Preparation

  1. Mix all ingredients together.  (If you want to get some extra prep work done the night before, you can chop and mix everything except the avocados and store it in a bowl over night.  Then right before serving, add the avocados and possibly extra salt and pepper.)

Serves a crowd of blue cheese loving guac enthusiasts!
