This Blue Cheese Guacamole is my most popular Guacamole recipe. I saw a similar blue cheese guacamole on TV years ago but couldn’t locate the recipe anywhere so I decided to roll up my sleeves and re-create it.
I knew it would taste great because I love Blue Cheese. Heck, I've even made a Blue Cheese Bacon Mac & Cheese with it. What I didn't expect was everyone to go bananas over it. By far one of my most requested recipes.
I'm not quite sure how to describe the flavor of Blue Cheese. I heard some describe the flavor as burnt caramel. Some describe it like sipping whole cream or eating a stick of butter. Not sure about any of those to be honest. You be the judge by trying it yourself.

🥓 How to Make Bacon
If you struggle to make bacon perfectly, I've put together a short tutorial on How to Make Perfect Bacon - 3 Ways. Check it out! My preferred method is baking it in the oven.
And don't throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.

🌶 How to Handle Hot Peppers
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
