So, here's the thing. Bacon is so played out in the food world right now. We have bacon chocolate bars, bacon oil, bacon salt, bacon print band-aids, and bacon sundaes at Burger King. There is even a small restaurant in Austin, Texas called Bacon that serves, well, everything bacon (try the the bacon doughnut...just do it). Some
truly sad souls people have
a difficult time understanding why bacon should play such a leading role off the breakfast table. I say everything should taste like bacon. Bring it!
Here is my small contribution to our over-saturated bacon kingdom, Bacon Guacamole.
I actually shed a tear when I tasted this.
You can thank me later...

the juice of 1/2 lime (or more to taste)

1 T fresh cilantro, chopped

In a large bowl, mash the avocado flesh with lime juice, grated garlic, cilantro, and salsa. Fold in the bacon. I suggest adding salt after tasting since the bacon and salsa is quite salty already.
