Ingredients
 

  • 4 strips bacon
  • 4 avocados
  • 1/2 cup corn, (see note 1)
  • 1/2 cup tomatoes , diced
  • 1/2 cup pineapple , diced
  • 1/2 cup bell pepper , diced
  • 1 jalapeño, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. red onion , minced
  • 1 Tbsp. chives, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. pepitas
  • 1.5 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1.5 tsp. salt

Instructions
 

  • Cook Bacon: Cook the bacon in a pan on the stove until crispy. Hear that bacon sizzle! Once the bacon is done cooking remove it from the pan and blot with paper towels to remove any excess grease. Roughly chop the bacon into bacon bits. Set aside.
  • Prep ingredients: Dice the tomatoes, pineapple, bell pepper and jalapeño. Thinly slice the chives. Cut the avocados in half, carefully remove the pit and scoop the avocado out of the peel.
  • Combine: Put the avocados in a medium sized bowl and mash with a fork into the desired guacamole consistency. Add the bacon bits, corn, tomato, pineapple, bell pepper, jalapeño, red onion, chives, pepitas, lime juice and salt to the bowl and gently stir all the ingredients to combine. Enjoy!

Notes

Note 1 - Corn: You can use canned corn or fresh corn. If using fresh corn, it must be cooked. Although any method of cooking will work, grilling the corn adds excellent flavor. Also, the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of corn which is about one ear.
