I thought I knew how to make good guacamole until I tried this bacon guacamole recipe. It seems like such an obvious pairing, but I’ve rarely (aside from Taco Bell) eaten bacon in Mexican dishes. I went in expecting the guac to be good, though not life-changing, but one bite rendered me speechless.

5 strips medium-thick bacon, cooked in the oven and cooled
3 medium-large, ripe avocados, cut in half and pitted
1/2 white onion, chopped into small dice, rinsed in cold water, and drained
2 or 3 canned chipotle chilies, removed from canning sauce, stemmed, slit open, seeded, and finely chopped

1/4 cup (loosely packed) fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
1 to 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
Salt, to taste
