Absolutely Avocado's Bacon Cotija Guacamole

Owen bought me the Absolutely Avocados book for Christmas this year, and it is so fun.  We love avocados around here, and so we are excited to try just about everything in this cookbook.  The first thing we tried was this Bacon Cotija Guacamole, and although I really liked it, and everyone else liked it pretty well, I have to warn you that the cotija cheese is pretty powerful.  I like it, but not everyone does.  Noah and I gave it an 8, and Aaron and Owen gave it a 7.  Each serving was 321 calories, if you only divide it in four, but we divided it into 6, so it was a little less calories.

3 strips thick cut bacon, cooked and chopped
3 Hass avocados
1/2 c chopped cilantro
1/2 c crumbled cotija cheese
1 T jalapeno, chopped
Juice of 1 lime

Mix all ingredients in the blender, reserving some of the bacon to garnish the top.  Serve with chips.


  1. What is cotija cheese? I have never heard of it. Love mom

    1. It is a salty Mexican cheese, kind of similar to feta but I think it has a stronger flavor.
