Spicy Bacon Guacamole

Spicy guac recipe

A double hit of heat—fresh jalapeño and a bit of cayenne sprinkled on the bacon as it bakes—really brings this guac to life. Making homemade oven-baked chips takes only a few minutes, but you can substitute bagged chips if you like.

Makes about 2 cups | Total Time: Less Than 60 Mins

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Applegate Natural Sunday Bacon or Applegate Organic Sunday Bacon
  • Cayenne
  • 10 small corn or flour tortillas
  • 2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
  • Kosher salt
  • 3 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro, plus more for garnish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Arrange the bacon on a small baking sheet and sprinkle with cayenne. Bake until crisp, flipping halfway through, 15–18 minutes. Transfer the bacon to a paper towel–lined plate to drain. Once cool, finely chop the bacon. 
  2. Meanwhile, brush both sides of the tortillas lightly with oil then stack the tortillas and cut the stack into 6 wedges. Arrange the tortilla wedges on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake, stirring once, until crisp and golden brown, 10–12 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with salt. Set aside to cool. 
  3. Combine the avocados, lime juice and ¼ teaspoon salt and mash together with a fork. Stir in the jalapeño, cilantro and half of the bacon. 
  4. Taste and adjust the seasonings. Scatter the remaining bacon over the guacamole and garnish with some chopped cilantro. Serve the guacamole at once with the chips.
