Corn and Bacon Guacam-Olé!

3 cups
25 min

Put the Olé in guacamole with the addition of sweet roasted corn and smoky bacon!

No Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without guacamole!

Corn and Bacon Guacamole has the flavorful

char of corn and the addition of smoky bacon!

If you’re ever had Chili’s Fire-Grilled Corn Guacamole,

this is one step better with the addition of bacon!

Start with a chunky version of guacamole

or cut/mash to your preferred texture.

To 3 avocados, add 1/4 cup chopped red onion, 1/2 cup each diced plum tomato

and chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt to taste.

I keep a bag of Trader Joe’s or Trader José’s :) frozen fire roasted corn

on hand to add to salsa, quesadillas, or soups.

If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s near you,

grill 2 ears of corn until charred and cut off the kernels.

The roasted or grilled corn adds just the right amount of sweetness and smokiness

to the guacamole or is wonderful mixed with your jarred salsa!

Add 6 slices crumbled cooked bacon

and 1/3 cup chopped pickled jalapenos.

If you like guacamole, the addition of corn & bacon will make you say, “Olé” !
