Add a thick slice of peppered bacon and cotija to your guacamole for a unique spin on the classic dip!

Bacon Guacamole with Queso Fresco - Best.guac.evah!! |

^ This is my crack.

Avocadoes are my spirit animal, and when you moosh them up with my 2nd favorite meat in all the land (bacon) + my 4th favorite cheese ever to exist (cotija), I basically begin fiending like a rabid werewolf-like creature apparatus. But with a certain amount of class, because: appearances.

So really what I’m trying to say here is the making of this guacamole carves out a slice of heaven on earth and jettisons you into this bubble in the space-time continuum that cannot be tarnished by lame co-workers, bad moods, hangnails, and/or poorly skilled automobile drivers.

Side note: if you don’t eat bacon, you can omit it from the recipe and still end up with a super bangarang guacamole

Eating suggestions: serve this stuff up with crackers, chips, or raw vegetables. You can also use it on your favorite sandwiches, burgers, and in wraps. Per ush, I ate it on top of my scrambled eggs.

I put it on my morning scramble.

I know, you’re shocked.

I ate it with a spoon.

I put it on chili.

Anywhere a guac can go, that’s where it went.

Chips ahoy?


Make it for your football matches you seem to be watching on the TVs.
No spirit animals were harmed in the making of this guacamole

Questions and Reviews

  1. i love the combo of avocado and bacon, it’s life changing! I wonder why i have never put guac and bacon together???? perfection!

  2. I love this loaded version of guac – genius! Now you’re making me want a BLT with avocado!

  3. I’m ashamed to admit that I still haven’t tried cojita cheese. Something is srsly wrong with me.

    Ima have change that with this guac, minus the bacon. I’ll leave that one to the thousands of other people who are going to go nuts over this combo! 😉

  4. haha oh gosh I would have no control around this guac!! I am crazy even with plain guac but with salty bacon and queso fresco??? I would demolish this.

  5. Friend, I think this is the best guacamole recipe I’ve ever seen online just because the bacon. I love bacon and I’ve never thought about adding bacon in my guacamole recipe. Love this idea, Ju! Hope you have a wonderful weekend 😉

  6. Haha, I don’t think I’d put this on Chips Ahoy, but anywhere else…YES! I’ve had guacamole bunches of ways as I make it several times a week, but why haven’t I thought to add bacon? This looks insanely good!

  7. The next time we have avocados in our house — so, like, in a day or so — I’m making this guac, and I know our tastebuds will never be able to enjoy regular guac ever again. Seriously. SO. RIDICULOUSLY. GOOD.
