Best guacamole 1

Vin Bennett takes first place in Avofest Guacamole 

An easy-to-follow recipe makes for a classic guacamole with a flavor twist of bacon. Considering the collective avocado experience in Carpinteria, the winning guac would have to break new ground, and it seems Ms. Bennett has done just that.

Trader Joe’s One-Stop Shop Guac
Recipe by Vin Bennett

Ingredients:
2 slices of bacon (crisp and crumbled)
3 medium-size ripe avocados
2 tablespoons red onion (thinly sliced and diced)
2 cloves garlic (microplaned/grated)
2 tablespoons Trader Joe’s Everything But The Bagel
2 tablespoons Trader Joe’s Yuzu Hot Sauce
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

Directions:
Cook bacon slices. Dry on paper towel and crumble. Combine all ingredients and mash and stir until well incorporated. Adjust to taste!
Fry Mi Abuela corn and wheat tortillas (Trader Joe’s) to make chips and enjoy!
