I first stumbled on a version of this loaded guacamole at the Frontera Grill restaurant at the O’Hare airport in Chicago. Guacamole + chips as a pre-flight snack… heck yes. I feel passionately that chips and guac would be an excellent addition to every airport. Could you imagine – a little stall in every airport with a quick hit of guac and chips in a to-go bag. LIFE ALTERING.

While we all manifest that to happen, we need this loaded guacamole at home! Creamy smashed avocados with crispy salty bacon, a few sun dried tomatoes, crumbled cotija and some pepitas make not only the most incredible snack, but also it’s kinda a meal. Serve it up with homemade tortilla chips and you’re in business.

  8. Dear plain guacamole please move aside for “loaded Guacamole,” there’s a new favorite in town! Wow, oh wow, does this look amazing.

  9. Why half lime & half lemon juice is crucial? What’s the difference between that and all lime or all lemon juice? Thank you.
