Fancy Guacamole 6.10 He's Slippin' 'Em Bread...Dig?
“Man, this place stunk.” “Downright usurious! Now look at the other side! The Brazlefrat? “They did charge me for that second beer! I never got it!” “Scandalous. But the other side.” “Six bucks for guacamole.”
4-5 avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced
¼ cup cilantro, finely chopped
1 shallot, peeled and finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely minced
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 roma tomato, diced
6 slices of bacon, chopped (reserve ½ tbsp of bacon grease)
1 chipotle pepper in adobo, finely chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
½ tsp tajin
¼ tsp red pepper chili flakes
In a medium bowl, add the avocados and mash with a fork until smooth.
Add in all other ingredients and mix until well-incorporated.
So this guacamole is probably more than $6 in this economy, but back in 2006, it would probably be $6 at a restaurant. Though, I don’t know why Luke is all upset about that because this is dang good guacamole. I know you might be thinking, bacon in guacamole? But just trust me! One of my favorite Tex Mex restaurants does a table-side guacamole, and they add bacon to it. I took that one step further and added bacon grease right into the guacamole as well. This just adds a rich flavor and takes your guac to the next level. I also like adding shallots, scallions, and tajin to my guacamole because again, it creates a robust flavor profile.
Happy cooking from the Hollow!
