Rick Bayless's Bacon and Tomato Guacamole

Fiesta at Rick's by Rick Bayless is a must-have for anyone who's enamored of all things avocado-related. And if guacamole is your thing (but really, who doesn't love it?) Fiesta at Rick's has some of the tastiest variations out there. With a fruit as creamy, rich, and versatile as the avocado there are countless ingredients that can be added to the mix—mango for sweetness, toasted pumpkin seeds for a nutty crunch, and, of course, bacon.

This Bacon and Tomato Guacamole takes the classic flavors of a BLT and pairs them with smooth avocado, and spicy, smokey chipotles in adobo, along with the lime, onion, and cilantro. Once all of the ingredients are mixed, the guacamole alternates bites of cool avocado and cilantro, bright tomatoes, sharp onions, crisp salty bits of bacon, and a heat from the chipotles. If you thought that a guacamole and chips was hard to resist before, adding bacon makes it doubly irresistible.
