Guacamole is tasty and fun to eat. It is meant to be shared with friends instead of eating it alone. This guacamole recipe packs a punch, and not just because of the crispy and salty bacon. The subtle but spicy taste of serrano peppers is sure to tickle your taste buds and delight spice lovers. If you don't want spicy guacamole, simply omit the serrano and enjoy guacamole without it.
Chips and guac are a classic, but the chips aren’t quite as healthy as the guac. Use veggies like cucumbers, celery, carrots, or bell peppers for a dipping stick, instead of chips. A perfect complement for this delicious snack.
