Creamy Avocado, light sour cream, spices and crisp bacon make for the perfect Summer appetizer!
Are you on the avocado toast train yet? Oh man, I am. Toast+white cheddar+avocado+a smidge of lime and if I am feeling really wild, a little bacon. It is my go to snack or breakfast. Heck, it is even my dinner on really desperate nights!
All of this avocado eating means I buy a ton every week at the grocery. And sometimes, albeit rarely, I end up with more avocados that I can consume before they go bad. So, I felt it was my duty to create some sort of super easy recipe to use up a bunch of avocados. Because my goal in life is to make sure avocados are never wasted. Never ever. Not a one.
This recipe is so easy I am not even sure it constitutes being an actual “recipe.” It all starts with bacon (as all good things should) just fry up some nice thick bacon until it is perfectly crisp. Give your bacon a nice rough chop and set it aside.
Break out your blender. Toss in some avocados, it is okay if they have browned a little bit – nobody will know- and add a container of sour cream, a few spices, and some lime juice for good measure. Blend the mixture for just a few seconds, you just want to get it nice and creamy with no chunks or at least no big chunks.
Add in the chopped bacon, give it a stir and scrape your Avocado Bacon Dip into a big bowl and top it with all your favorite Mexican toppings. I garnished with cilantro, tomatoes, extra bacon (of course) and a few lime wedges.
- 6 slices of bacon cooked until crisp and roughly chopped
