Bacon Guacamole

4 Feb

Yes that’s right. Bacon Guacamole. When you have two of the best tasting wonders in all the universe, why not combine them for something even better? And just in time for SuperBowl Sunday.

I wish I could say I thought of the idea. But when I can make and eat a dish this incredible… who cares? My friends Jeff and Owen introduced me to a wonderful Mexican restaurant in Studio City called Cascabel. They have Bacon Guacamole as an appetizer. Jeff and Owen said it was a must. They ordered it and the waitress brought it to the table.

After I pulled my face out of the bowl and wiped the remains out of my eyebrows, I realized I would have to try my own version. So here it comes.

Your “Go To” Dip for 2015

23 Jan


I am blessed with three wonderful sisters, Diane, Jeanye and Ruth. They came into my life in my 20’s, when my mother remarried after my father died. I’ve had many wonderful and hilarious times with all three ever since. They are the best.

Jeanye and I are addicted to cards and will play for hours at a stretch. Which means, of course, we need some ‘nibbles’, as she likes to call them, while we play. Sustenance is important, right? (It also keeps the mind sharp for kicking ass at cards… We are a little competitive.) The last time we played at her house, she combined the remains of two left over store-bought items on a whim: pimento cheese and a corn salad.

We inhaled it.

It was so good I was determined to create a homemade version. After a few rounds of experimenting, I present you a dip you will make for the rest of your life. This stuff is good. Because of the ingredients, it also lasts a while in the fridge. I always double it, in fact. So make a big batch, serve with vegetables and/or crackers, and enjoy.

This is perfect for the Super Bowl, btw.

Oh and importantly, for the Southerners anyway, this is the best pimento cheese recipe ever, one I’ve come up with by combining a few recipes over the years. Make just the pimento cheese for the best pimento cheese sandwich on the planet.
