Avocados and I.

Well.

We kinda have this thing, avocados and I. It was love at first taste. It’s creamy green goodness is unmatchable. Guacamole is centered around them. Toast pays tribute to them (ahem.. avocado toast) and there are shirts with pictures of them.

People love them some avocado.

And believe me, I am first in line at that avocado party.

Someday I hope to have an Avocado tree in our backyard. With the amount of avocados that I buy per week, it would save us some money!

The funny thing about avocados is they don’t really taste like much. Have you noticed that? They are creamy yes. But they aren’t tangy, sweet, salty. or spicy. They are just kinda neutral. But they are one of the most adored fruits ever. And yes, it is a fruit NOT a vegetable. (just like tomatoes)

These guys are most definitely the star of the show when they are brought to a party. Which is why it’s a MUST to have them! ESPECIALLY at a Cinco de Mayo party.

You know that Cinco de Mayo is next weekend right? And how fun that it falls on a Saturday this year instead of a weekday.

Last year, we created Maddie on Cinco de Mayo (or at least that’s what I’m claiming because the timing works out)… too many margaritas! haha This year, no more babies but let their be Margaritas and Guacamole galore.

I’m hosting a Cinco de Mayo party at our house and the list is bountiful –> Chicken Taquitos, Beef Fajitas, Carnitas, Pineapple Salsa, Churro Cheesecake Bars, Berry Margaritas and Sangria. But one things for sure, this Bacon Guacamole will definitely be there in all it’s glory!

I mean come on. Bacon + Guacamole. Sounds like a recipe for total deliciousness to me! Am I right?

This guac is filled with creamy avocado, all the usual suspects (tomato, cilantro, onion and jalapeno) and of course crispy salty bacon!

You’re definitely going to love every bite of it. Bon Appetit friends.

    Adding bacon is a sure fire way for this to be devoured very quickly in my house, lol! I may have to try this before the kids get home just to ensure I get a scoop or two!
