Best Ever Chunky Guacamole

Recipe by Mrs Goodall
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 2-3 cups


  • 3
    avocados, preferably Haas and medium in size
  • 6
    slices bacon
  • 1
    teaspoon bacon fat (reserved and rendered from cooking the bacon)
  • 3
    large scallions, sliced thin, about 1/3 cup
  • 1
    medium garlic clove, pressed (If you don't have a garlic press, just mince the garlic. I usually use 2 or three garlic cloves)
  • 1
    small jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and minced
  • 14
    cup cilantro leaf, minced
  • salt, to taste
  • 12
    teaspoon ground cumin (more or less to taste)
  • 2
    tablespoons lime juice (fresh squeezed)


  • Fry bacon on stovetop until crisp.
  • Drain bacon and reserve at least 1 teaspoon of rendered bacon fat.
  • When bacon is cool to touch, crumble it.
  • Halve one of the avacados, remove the pit, and scoop the flesh into a medium bowl.
  • Mash the flesh lightly with the scallions, garlic, chile, cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cumin with the tines of a fork until just combined.
  • Add the bacon crumbles and bacon fat and combine with avacado mixture.
  • Halve, pit, and CUBE the remaining 2 avocados. Add the cubes to the bowl with the mashed avocado mixture.
  • Sprinkle the lime juice over the diced avocado and mix the entire contents of the bowl lightly with a fork until combined but still chunky. Adjust the seasongs with salt if necessary,(you can add a bit more bacon fat if you like), and serve.
