This bacon guacamole is simply epic! Based on the Chipotle guacamole recipe with just the perfect salty bacon-y crunch, this guac is the perfect keto or paleo appetizer or side with tortilla chips, grain-free tortilla chips, or on burrito bowls.
Why This Bacon Guacamole is So Good!
- This guacamole is insanely addictive — salty and richly flavorful with lime, onion, and cilantro.
- It’s oh so easy to make in just five minutes with only a few simple ingredients.
- This bacon guacamole is perfect for keto, paleo, and low carb diets.
How To Make Bacon Guacamole
- Dice the bacon and cook in a skillet on the stove until it’s nice and crispy. Put on a paper towel covered plate to drain the grease, then put to the side.
- Add the peeled, pitted avocados to a bowl along with the lime juice and salt. Mash with a potato masher until smooth with some chunks of avocado left.
- Add in red onion, jalapeño (if desired), and cilantro, and stir until mixed well.
- Sprinkle bacon on top of guacamole and serve with chips, pieces of bacon, veggies, or in a burrito or taco bowl.
Top Tips for Making Bacon Guacamole
- Make sure to use sugar-free bacon. We used Pederson’s, which is available at Sprouts Farmer’s Market.
- We love Sprouts brand grain-free tortilla chips! Siete is amazing, too; both can be found at Sprouts Farmer’s Market.
- If you are on a keto diet, you can make your own keto tortilla chips or use pieces of bacon, cut into thirds and cooked until crisp, to dip! Parmesan crisps are also great for dipping.
- For paleo, use plantain chips, or try it on top of burrito bowls or taco salads.
- Leave out the bacon for vegan guacamole.
