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!
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.
