Guacamole with Bacon, Scallions, and Tomato
Why This Recipe Works
Our best guacamole recipe put the avocado back where it belonged, at center stage. We started with fully ripe (the fruit yields slightly to a gentle squeeze when held in the palm of your hand), small, rough-skinned Hass avocados. Then we mashed a third of the avocados with a fork, combining them with the other ingredients (onion, garlic, jalapeño, cilantro, salt, and cumin). Dicing the remaining avocados and folding them in with a very light hand gave our guacamole recipe the chunky texture we prefer.
