Pineapple Bacon Guacamole
This Pineapple Bacon Guacamole is exploding with flavor and absolutely screams summertime! Is there a better appetizer out there than a bowl of fresh guacamole with a side of chips? I seriously don’t think so.
A good guacamole recipe is something everyone should know how to make. It’s my go-to snack for bringing to parties and I love that it’s healthy and always a crowd-pleaser.
It really is so versatile too. I know everyone has their favorite way of making it, but this Pineapple Bacon Guacamole has quickly become one of my new favorites. What’s not to love about bacon crumbles in guac and cubes of pineapple thrown in for good measure?
Of course, this dip is great with any chip or cracker and even works as a spread in a wrap, but it’s especially wonderful with Jackson’s Honest Purple Heirloom Potato Chips.
Have you guys tried these chips? Oh my goodness, I’m addicted! Good thing they’re made with simple “real” ingredients. This is the ingredient list – Non GMO Potatoes, Organic Coconut Oil, Sea Salt. Yep… that’s it.
Combine purple heirloom potato chips with this Pineapple Bacon Guacamole and you’ve got the most perfect summer appetizer! Memorial Day is just around the corner, so grab Jackson’s Honest Purple Heirloom Potato Chips and take this along to outdoor gatherings or BBQs, or serve it with pretty much any dinner. I think it would pair especially well with burgers or tacos!
