Bacon Pesto Guacamole? Yes please. This is one delicious gourmet guacamole. One of my most popular guacamole recipes.
Here’s another fabulous gourmet Bacon Pesto Guacamole for you to try. I am told this guacamole is almost as good as my Blue Cheese Guacamole which I have yet to publish on this blog. UPDATE: Here it is: Blue Cheese Guacamole.
I really do like this guacamole. Not because it has bacon in it either. We all know that bacon makes everything taste better? I think the Pesto and avocado combination is what makes this a delicious guacamole.
Choosing the wrong avocadoes will ruin your guac. Basically you want a perfectly ripe Avocado. This is a great article on how to select the perfect avocado.
Just like I’ve done for some of my other recipes, I wanted to know the history of Guacamole so I consulted the all-knowing Wikipedia and found this article.
