A very exciting thing happened to me this past week at the farmers market. I was casually strolling along on my way to the “avocado man” ready to go pick up my weekly 10 avocados, and when I got there he surprised me with the Bacon avocado!!! I’ve been bugging him for weeks now, asking when the Bacon avocados were coming. I just needed them. I needed to make new guacamole creations and the bacon avocado was exactly what I was waiting for. The bacon avocado is slightly different than the Hass (which is what we normally see in the market) in that it is more creamy and the peel is super thin. Pretty much it’s amazing, and it makes a kick ass guacamole!
Since its been in the 70’s here in L.A, I’ve been feeling very springy and wanted to make a light and tangy guacamole. I thought goat cheese would be a perfect addition to my favorite food of all times, and it turns out that goat cheese in guacamole is pretty life changing and delicious. Throw in a handful of fresh chives and you have one heck of an appetizer. Or in my case you have a big bowl of guacamole that you eat with a spoon and don’t share with a single soul. The goat cheese brings that extra bit of tang and the chives give it a little more texture plus that amazing chive taste!
