Bacon Guacamole Mariel Lewis August 21, 2012 Appetizers, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Latin American, Nut Free, Paleo, Pork, Soy Free, Summer 9 Comments At my household we eat guacamole like it’s going out of style, having it two to three times a week. This is a lot of guacamole, considering our portion consists of a full Molcajete (shared between two people). Usually my husband ends up eating a little more than me, so that‘s a good thing I guess ;). This is what our Guacamole-time looks like: Once the Guacamole is prepared, we sit at our favorite spot in the house, grabbing a bunch of napkins (things get messy) and bringing two plates of chips along with us. We have two different plates of chips for two reasons: one, my husband doesn’t like the Taro chips I eat, he favors his sweet potato chips...and two, we like having our own portion of chips so we know exactly how many chips we end up eating in one sitting. There have been times when we have finished two entire bags of veggie chips, which is about 900 calories per person (without counting the guacamole!). So anyway, we sit down, get comfortable, make sure we both have a beverage and start digging in. Our eyes are set on one place only, and that is inside the Molcajete; our attention at the time is devoted 100% to this great snack. It takes us about three minutes to finish the entire thing…and by the end, we both try to win the last few bites. Those three minutes are three minutes well spent; not only are our taste buds in heaven, but we both talk about our plans, goals and our next steps in life. I love how sharing food also means sharing good conversations, ones that play a key role into defining who we will become. It is during our Guacamole-time when Preston and I discuss the goals we want to accomplish, both long and short term, and what we need to do to get there. Guacamole-time is good time! I try to switch up our Guacamole recipes to keep it interesting. I came up with this one yesterday. Get the full recipe here! 9 Responses Rafael August 22, 2012 Manana preparo!!!

Tastes so light a fresh and the bacon adds a great smokey quality to the guacamole that is delightful! I don’t have a molcajete and just mashed it up with a whisk in a bowl. Still came out great! Mariel Lewis November 3, 2013 So happy you like it, Bailey! Liz June 4, 2014 Just curious what you do with the other 1/2 of the avocado that you aren’t using in your guacamole recipes… Mariel Lewis June 9, 2014 I use it on salads!
