Lookout… guacamole has never tasted better! Adding crispy bacon to this guacamole recipe adds so much flavor. Serve this guacamole with tortilla chips or add a spoonful to your tacos.

Ingredients

  • Handful of cilantro (rinse well and pat dry)
  • 1 serrano pepper, chopped (remove stem and seeds)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small white onion, chopped
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 4 Haas avocados, halved, seeded and peeled

  • salt to taste

Method

Step 1

Fry 6 slices of bacon until crispy. Set aside.

Step 2

Finely chop the onion, garlic, cilantro and serrano pepper and place them in a mortar (or bowl). Add some of the lime juice (you will add the rest later), and mash everything with the pestle.

Step 3

Scoop the avocados into the mortar (or bowl) with the onion, garlic, cilantro and serrano. Mash coarsely with the pestle (or use a potato masher if you don't have a mortar and pestle).

Step 4

Add some of the chopped tomato to the mix (save some chopped pieces for the top of the dip). Add salt to taste and mix all together.

Step 5

Cut the bacon in small pieces and add to the top. Add the rest of the tomatoes and sunflower seeds. Squeeze a bit more lime and serve immediately. Simply delicious, enjoy!
