Grilled Bacon Guacamole

Do you know how hard it is to not eat the bacon while trying to make this recipe? Real stupid hard. I had to make extra bacon.

Sorry about the picture suckiness. I have kind of sucked at photography lately. That’s probably because, well, I suck at photography. I need to hire someone to do my food photography for me. Someone who doesn’t like making money for their contribution to my website. I’d pay them in food though. And hang out with them. I’m excited for this imaginary person. I think we could have real good time together.

I ate this guac with chili lime grilled sweet potatoes…but you’re gonna have to wait until tomorrow to see that recipe! Jokes on you!

Guess what? I go to Lake Powell soon! Yes I do! It’s a bit worrisome since I have the competition the next weekend after I get back, but I’m trying to press on. I’m not sure what workouts I’ll do there, but I have a feeling it will look a lot like this:

  • burpees
  • air squats
  • burpees
  • push ups
  • burpees
  • burpees
  • burpees

In some weird way, I really like burpees. I’m not any good at them, but I actually kind of like the pain they cause. It’s crazy how such a simple movement can inflict so much pain onto the body. Bodies are weird. Burpees are weirder.

Wanna see how good I looked on Saturday night? Reaaaaal good. And this was before I was intoxicated. This is the exact reason I didn’t get hit on. #fail. I love hashtags.

I have almost stopped craving sweets completely. It’s pretty rad. Except now I kind of want ice cream. Ah crap.


Grilled Bacon Guacamole

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 3-6 1x


  • 3 large avocados, halved lengthwise, pits removed
  • 1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes, excess liquid removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 68 strips bacon, cooked and diced
  • 1/3 jalapenos, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • handful of cilantro, diced
  • juice of 2 limes
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Heat up your grill!
  2. Cut avocados in half, remove pits, place on a plate and spritz (yes I said spritz) with 1/2 a lime.
  3. Then use a brush to “glaze” the inside of the avocados with olive oil then sprinkle with salt.
  4. Place avocados face down on the top rack of your grill and cook for 6-8 minutes or until your avocados have grill marks on them.
  5. While avocados cook, cook your bacon, let cool and dice up with a knife.
  6. Dice up your jalapenos, yellow, and garlic cloves and place in a large bowl.
  7. Once your avocados are done cooking, let cool, then scoop the ingredients into your bowl.
  8. Use a fork to mash up your guacamole, then add your bacon, tomatoes, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, your remaining lime juice, cilantro, and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  9. Serve with chips of your choice or eat with a big honk of meat!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. The only possible reason I would have not to make this recipe would be that I would eat all of it right after making it. With a spoon. And not share with anyone else.
    It’s everything that is good and right in the world.

    That picture is awesome….so hilarious. Why the F are avocados so expensive? I live in Florida how more warm south can you get and how hard are these things to grow! I have a damn plant on my porch….an avocado one…no little babies yet. But if I get like 50 on that plant I am gonna be mad that the stores charge so much!

    1. I was told (by someone who knows more about botany than I do) that you have to have two avocado trees in order for either of them to bear fruit, since they have to cross-pollinate. A friend of mine who lives in Cali has avocado trees…so jealous!!

      1. Katrina–my BF is a plant science guy and you are correct. However, my parents have had two avo trees for about 5 years now and they’re huge and make the worst fruit (small and/or tasteless). Fussy things, I guess. 🙁

    1. Wouldn’t it be non avocado season for your all up in the Northern Hemisphere? Its winter in Aus which means avocado season! So I would assume it would be the opposite for you guys?

  3. I can’t wait to make this guac this weekend! Also, I’m with you on the burpees…it’s a very love/hate relationship.

  4. I would just like to say … don’t think you snuck past us awesome/creeper/loyal readers that photo of you … in JEANS! 🙂 I easily identify with your posts about your shopping woes, so for all the crossfit women out there who have a love/hate relationship with their jeans, I have to say you appear to be rockin’ them Juli!

  5. Is the sugar detox affecting your ADD? Your blog and the video is getting more and more all over the place! Sorry about the picture, you look awful =( It actually took some point off of my lesbian crush on you. LOL

    1. Kristina – does it make you feel better to say negative things about people ? It seems that way…instead of saying negative things try positive…it might help your self esteem so you don’t have to put other people down to feel better. Just sayin…

  6. Juli, weird revelation this past week. About cutting out nuts, I though maybe you were nuts, but turns about you are right. I was home potty training my son for the past 5 days, didn’t have time to get “snacky” like I do at work and didn’t eat any nuts. Just meat and veggies, holy hell I feel amazing. Bloat be gone!!! Thank you so much for putting the nut theory out there!! Now I need to go back to work and change my snack drawer!!! Any ideas for a person that sits and thinks about food when she gets bored? Jerky? Eggs? I’m not very creative b/c I have been snacking on nuts mostly.
    Thanks again!

  7. I had bacon guacamole at my favorite mexican joint this weekend. AMAZEballs!!!! Honestly, I felt like a crack addict but with bacon. Nobody in their right mind can say no to bacon.

  8. LOL, that picture of you in the bar…and I’m laughing with you because I look like that in most “candid” photos as well. Why can’t my sitting around doing nothing face be a beautiful smile? 🙂

  9. I just started wanting ice cream randomly too…i think it’s weird when i want ice cream. I haven’t thought about it in a couple month and all of a sudden it’s all i want. i found a recipe for paleo grilled peach ice cream made with canned coconut milk. Maybe you can make a crazy concoction of ice cream made from sweet potato puree/cinnamon/nutmeg/coconut milk??

  10. I can’t stop laughing!!!! So sorry but that photo is hilarious. I have a theory on your dating getting hit on issue….you are always hanging out with hot guys who could beat the crap out of any guy that approached you, I’m thinking they are scared to get beat up…just a thought:)

    So trying this while camping this weekend.

  11. You’ve done it. You’ve done it! Coupled my two favorite things in the whole world..Guac and Bacon into one. HOORAY! If I wasn’t at work, and up in Broomfield…I’d kiss ya! Can’t wait to make this…

    And, I agree with Kristin W., Juli…my gut is that maybe guys are intimated by the amount of dudes, ripped dudes, you hang out with. Keep your head up though lady, you are young..and eventually your prince will arrive!

    Sweetheart……I think you are so dang cute! I would seriously consider cutting off an arm to have your thighs, butt and well, everything else!! I am a 53 yr. old 260 lb. woman who is 3 weeks into Paleo and Crossfit. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done but I believe the 2nd half of my life will be so much better now because of it. I am so happy to have found sites like yours like inspire and encourage me. Don’t ever forget that on the days you might feel down on yourself – remember you are an inspiration to someone!

  13. help! i don’t have a grill! should i bake for a bit in the oven or throw on a skillet? or just omit. i’m going to make this in about one hour! help!

    1. you could bake them and cook them under a broiler for a bit to get that flavor, but it would be just as delicious without the grill factor.

  14. Burpees are evil. Period.

    Nice looking recipe – my bacon usually does not last long enough to include so we’ll see. Thanks for the awesomeness that is your blog. 🙂

  15. I have been following your blog for a few months now but I have never commented. Once I saw that you love Burpees I had to comment. Everyone at the CrossFit gym I go to thinks I am wicked tapped because I love burpees. It is about time some one else stated how amazing they truly are.
    Also, great recipes. I love the sweet potato brownies the most!
    I look forward to trying this one. Where is your book?

  16. I grew up on Lake Powell, well in Page but I was at the lake as often as I could be. One of the greatest places on earth in my opinion. I have done a few wods on the beaches of that lake, death by burpees being one…

    Enjoy your trip!!

  17. Making this tonight for a bunch of my CF friends- and we are all so excited. 🙂 I don’t know if we are more excited about getting together- or eating this! Juli- you are a genious! I haven’t tried something yet from your blog that I haven’t loved! THANKS!

  18. I have a ? about the ingredients. How much jalapenos does the recipe call for? Is it 1/3 cup chopped jalapenos? Or is it 1/3 of a jalapeno chopped? Or is it 1-3 jalapenos chopped? I want to make this recipe for a wine party & want
    the guacamole to be awesome & not too hot!
