guacamole bar

08.16.10

I’ve been wanting to try out a guac bar┬ásince I saw it in Eating Well last year and I knew just the event to make it for, the annual Fiesta Party. Lucky for me, my friend Anna (who happens to be a guacamole goddess) let me bring the guacamole this year!

Maybe it was the idea of adding bacon to guacamole that really sold me or mabye it is the idea of a “toppings bar” – I just love that everyone can create their own personal guacamole according to their tastes. While I’ve never been to a Rick Bayless restaurant, I know he knows his stuff and this guacamole proves just that.

The guacamole is a basic one – roasted garlic, lime and cilantro. The toppings are all up to you!

Toppings:

  • crisp bacon bits
  • queso fresco crumbles
  • pickled jalapenos
  • diced tomatoes

    This is a ridiculous idea and I want it! Love guacamole but I would not have thought to add BACON. Delicious.
    By the way I answered your q’s about the asian grocery store and such on my pad thai post :)

    What a great idea! I also love anything that involves making your own food, its always so much more fun and that way people can really make it unique. I would have never thought to do a guacamole bar. Its ashame my bf hates guac, otherwise I would be all over this. I might have to bring it out for a girls night.

    Fun! I love “bar” entertaining, such as pasta bars, kebab bars, burger bars and the like. And bacon in guac sounds delicious for sure!
