Bacon Pimento Guacamole


     Football season is here and it would not be complete without the best snacks and dips for tailgating and watching the big games!  When I'm entertaining for a big game, I prefer to have lots of appetizers and shareable snacks as opposed to a full meal.  When I saw a recipe for guacamole that included pimentos AND bacon, I instantly knew it would be a winner before even tasting it!  Like many of my favorite recipes, I originally came across this one in Southern Living Magazine here.  I pretty much stuck to the original recipe, just slightly adjusting a few of the ingredient amounts and adding some extra seasonings.  This is super easy and quick to whip up in just a few minutes which is another huge plus when you're entertaining!  Find all the ingredients and full instructions below!




serves 8

3 peeled and pitted ripe avocadoes

3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons kosher salt

                            1 teaspoon garlic pepper

1 4-oz. jar diced pimientos, drained

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

6-8 cooked and crumbled bacon slices

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Blue corn tortilla chips


Begin by mashing your avocado in a bowl.  Mix in the lime juice and seasonings.  Gently fold in the pimentos, onion, cilantro, and bacon (reserving a tiny bit of bacon and cilantro for the top).  Finish with a sprinkle of bacon and cilantro on the top of your guacamole.
