Goat Cheese Guacamole


Total Time:

5 minutes

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!

  3. Cookin’ Canuck

    This sounds fantastic! I am going to have to ask my in-laws to send my some bacon avocados from CA.

  4. Jenna

    Awesome! I love the idea of adding goat cheese . . . and I didn’t know what a bacon avocado was before today, so thanks! =) Avocados are one of my favorite foods period, so I’ll have to try this other kind.

  5. Anya

    YUM!! This sounds like such a good combination! I will have to keep my eyes open for the bacon avocado when I head to my farmers market!

  9. Allison

    What kind of goat cheese (or maker) would be ideal for this? Or could you describe the goat cheese flavor you used?

  10. jmje

    I want this. I have never heard of bacon avocados. But this sounds awesome. I love goat cheese.

  11. marla

  12. Lucy

    Oh, I’m with you. I think I’ll make this and hide it away so I don’t have to share. Fabulous combination!

  13. Cathy/ShowFoodChef

    Great combo – a def try for this weekend. Love the way you think! 😀

  14. Heather Christo

    Gaby! I love your guacamole addiction! Since goat cheese is one of my favorites I am excited to try this out. Looks like a big bowl of chips and guac for me tonight 🙂

  15. Stephanie @ Per l’Amore del Cibo

    I would never think to add goat cheese to guac…but considering those are two of my favorite things ever, it seems logical! Looks delish!

  16. Letizia Golosa

    I am definitely trying this recipe! I love making guacamole and your version is perfect for my taste-buds cause I love goat cheese! PERFECTION!

  17. Laura @ OhMuhGuh, Food!

    Oh, this looks absolutely delish! Don’t know when we’ll be seeing the bacon avocados again out here in Colorado (hopefully soon, as my blog cohort and I love them), but I’ll be trying this even without the bacon avocados. Hopefully my imagination will be able to conjure the right flavor. 😉 In our group, anything with avocados gets a “Yes, Please!” and adding goat cheese to it, well, that’ll just be the icing on the cake… well, you know what I mean!

    How have I never made this before?! Avocados and goat cheese are two of my favorite foods, and combining them together is a genius idea. I MUST make this.
