Ingredients

  • 5 strips bacon cooked and crumbled, save out some for garnish
  • 3 medium avocados ripe
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion chopped
  • 2-3 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce removed from adobo sauce, stemmed, split open, seeds scraped out and fine chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes red and yellow, chopped, some saved for garnish
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 cup iceberg lettuce fine shredded, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Cook the bacon in a skillet, oven or microwave until crispy and browned. Drain on paper towels and then coarsely crumble.

  2. Cut around each avocado then twist into two halves. Dislodge the pit. Scoop the flesh from the skin into a large bowl. Using a large fork, mash the avocados into a coarse puree.

  3. Add most of the bacon, most of the tomatoes, the onion, the chiles in adobo and most of the cilantro. Season with a little salt and lime juice. Gently combine with a large spoon.

  4. Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface of the guacamole and refrigerate until you're ready to serve. Scoop the guacamole into a serving dish. 

  5. Garnish with remaining bacon, tomatoes, and cilantro. Sprinkle some of the shredded lettuce on top. Serve with corn chips.
