Spicy Bacon Guacamole

A creamy Mexican favourite with the sneaky addition of crispy bacon.

4 strips bacon
2 ripe avocados
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 small red onion, finely chopped (about 1/4 cup)
2 to 4 tablespoons drained jarred pickled jalapeno slices, chopped, plus 2 teaspoons brine
1 plum tomato, seeded and chopped
Tortilla chips, for serving

Place the bacon in a large skillet and set over medium heat. Cook, turning, until crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined-plate to drain.

Meanwhile, halve and pit the avocados. Scoop the avocado into a medium bowl and add the lime juice, cumin, 3/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mash with a fork until combined but still a bit chunky. Add the red onions, pickled jalapenos and brine and tomatoes, reserving a few pieces of tomato for garnish.

Crumble the bacon into the bowl, saving a spoonful for garnish, and stir together to combine. Garnish with the reserved tomato and bacon and the additional pickled jalapenos. Serve with tortilla chips.
