Ingredients

  • 2 slices bacon cooked
  • 3 ripe avocados
  • 2 tbsp lime juice

Instructions

  • While bacon is cooking, dice onion, tomato and pepper and set aside.
  • Place avocado in a bowl, add lime juice and then mash the avocados with a fork.
  • Stir in onion, tomato and pepper.
  • Last, stir in cilantro, bacon and salt.
  • Serve with chips and enjoy!

Notes

Storage: storing guacamole can be tricky because it browns quickly, but have no fear because it IS doable! Once the guacamole is in a bowl, squirt a hefty amount of lime (or lemon) juice on top, then place a piece of plastic wrap over the bowl and gently press down so that it's touching the guacamole. Store in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. 
-Want to keep this meat-free? Omit the bacon! The bacon is delicious, but not an absolute "must" for this recipe (yes really!)
