Bacon Chipotle Guacamole saves the Super Bowl!

So here we are going into halftime with our beloved Seahawks (I live in Seattle) in a tight game with the ball deflaters, and we’ve run out of dip! A house full of hungry 12th men and women with loads of chips left and no dip – what will we eat while watching Katy Perry’s halftime show? And what could I possibly have left to eat in the kitchen to make something with?

I spy an avocado and a lime – yes it could be some more plain guac, but this is the SUPER BOWL and I need to serve SUPER FOOD! Quick fridge and pantry check and I see the makings of a good play –

Start by mashing one ripe avocado…

…add the zest and juice of one small lime…

add two slices of crisp-cooked, crumbled bacon and a tablespoon of minced chipotle peppers in adobo…

…finish it off with a thinly sliced green onion and a pinch of salt…

TOUCHDOWN! The smokiness of the peppers is unexpected in guacamole and it works great with the bacon. Rave reviews from the fans and the game can go on…GO HAWKS!
