I made this on a Saturday night and said to my dog, “This is the best guacamole I’ve ever had!” The next night my mom came over and ate leftovers and said, “This is the best guacamole I’ve ever had!” So there you have it. Keep reading if you want to make the best guacamole you’ve ever had.
Update 10/19/21: read about my backyard taco night!
The secret to this guacamole is crispy bacon and crumbled feta cheese stirred through my all-time favorite guacamole. I like my guac with lots of lime and bright, fresh flavor. This is perfect on its own with chips, on tacos, in a rice bowl, on enchiladas, and my gosh it would be amazing on a Tex-Mex burger. I hope you love this as much as we do!
3 strips thick-cut bacon
3 large avocados
1 lime, juiced
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup white onion, diced
3 Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
1/4 cup cilantro
1/3 cup feta cheese
- Use kitchen sheers to cut bacon into lardons directly in a nonstick skillet. Cook over medium-low heat until crispy. Remove and drain excess oil.
- Cut each avocado in half and scoop out meat into a large bowl. Toss with lime juice to coat. Add salt. Use a pastry blender or fork to mash avocados until creamy.
- Add onion, tomatoes, cilantro, crispy bacon, and feta cheese. Stir well. Enjoy!
Tip: if you don’t finish the bowl immediately or if you want to make this ahead of time, store in the fridge with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole to prevent the avocados from browning.
