Back to Avocado 101!



  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 serrano chile, minced
  • 1 Tablespoon minced red onion
  • 2 Tablespoons minced tomatoes
  • 2 Tablespoons minced cilantro
  • 3 Ounces cooked minced bacon
  • 1 Tablespoon crushed pork chicharrones (optional)
  • 3 Tablespoons cojita cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Crispy tortilla chips


In a large bowl, remove the flesh from the 2 avocados and discard the skin and seeds. Mash the avocados with a fork or spoon until a rough purée is formed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Fold in the serrano, tomato, cilantro, onion and stir to combine thoroughly. To serve, place the guacamole into the center of a large serving bowl. Top with crushed chicharron, crispy bacon (extra can be folded in for additional bacon flavor), and cotija cheese. Serve immediately. 

Bacon Shopping Tip

Look for center cut bacon which comes from a leaner part of the belly - you'll get more meat and less fat.

Bacon Cooking Tip

Cook bacon over medium to medium-low heat to prevent it from burning, and occasionally pour off the fat. You can save it for later use as a cooking oil.
