Buffalo Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole

Buffalo Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole from Lauren's Latest Lately I’ve been obsessing over a few things. And by obsessing, I mean doing/eating the following everyday for the past 7ish days or so:

-listening to the 90’s pop radio on Pandora. Yes, I’m still a 15 year old girl. And yes my 3 year old likes N’Sync. Why do you ask?
-eating chocolate covered strawberries. Because they are good. And I never seem to get sick of them.
-sweeping my floor. Because I hate ants in my house. See this post if you don’t know what I’m talking about.
-eating ruby red grapefruits. Because I can’t get over how sweet they taste these days! Citrus is the bomb.
-stalking old high school acquaintances. Just to see if the jerks are wasting their lives a way…which they are. Haha suckers!
-dreaming of Burger King Junior Whoppers. Because I’m pregnant and always magically crave a burger everytime I get in my car.
-also, dreaming of all sorts of other crap too. Because I’m a crazy lady growing a child which basically means hormones are running rampant through my body.
-obsessing over what NOT will be done once this bouncing baby makes his debut. I’m convinced the answer to that is nothing. Although it could perhaps have something to do with those lovely hormones setting up shop and having a little part-ay in my blood stream.
-craving butter lettuce. No other kind of lettuce is allowed in my fridge at this point in time. #butterlettuceforpresident
-shoving avocados into my face. Any way I can get them. They are tasty little suckers. And I bought 8200 at Costco. Soooooo, yeah.

Speaking of avocados, I made you something evil with them. And delicious. And easy. And creamy. And garlicky. And smokey. Because the super bowl is just around the corner…or so I hear. And because I’m a guacamole lover not a hater. This recipe is my go-to guacamole recipe but on crack.

Not THAT kind of crack. Oh you guys.

Buffalo Blue Cheese Guacamole with Bacon I added bacon, blue cheese and hot sauce to this version and created something ri-donk-ulous. People *will* go crazy for this guac because it’s different than regular guacamole but just as addicting. I fed this to company and here’s how that went down:

me: “I made weird guacamole…”

visitors try weird guacamole

visitor: “this is pretty good.”

visitors take another bite of weird guacamole

visitor: “this is REALLY good!”

True fact.

Buffalo Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole Perfect for big fatty superbowl parties, afternoon snacks or holidays. Once my Buffalo Bacon Blue Cheese Guacamole was all whipped up, I spooned it into a serving bowl and topped it with more blue cheese and hot sauce. So so good! And it looks pretty fancy all dolled up if I do say so myself.

Guacamole And then people will dig in and you’ll have to make another double batch. Print this one out to keep in your arsenal! You’re gonna love it!

Have a great Thursday, friends!

  1. Holy Moly! So many delicious things going on here… I’m in love. It’s like… buffalo cobb salad dip…. all my favorite things <3


  2. I bet this is insanely awesome! Would be good with feta or gorgonzola too if making for a blue-cheese-hating crowd


  3. This must be your pregnant-lady-genius coming out… because this looks AMAZING. I buy tons of avocados at costco also: I WILL be making this!


  4. Oh good. You mean I’m not the only one who craves BK Junior Whoppers? Except… I’m not pregnant. But they’re SO DANG GOOD! Thanks for this recipe too. My girls dig avocados, and we’ll have to try this out!
    Cheers girl!


  5. Holy guacamole! This is insane! ALL of my favorite things combined into one dish! I have a feeling Im going to go crazy over this…and quite possibly never revert back to plain ol’ guac. Yous so smaaat!


  6. This is such an interesting combination–I would never have thought to put them together–but they sound pretty awesome together. What a great recipe!


  7. I…just…. I can’t even. If it ensures that masterpieces like this would be coming out of your kitchen, can you just always be pregnant? (I kid……..kinda)


  8. This looks absolutely amazing! Great combination of flavors! I have always been a lover of the avocado…I even made up a song about them in my teens. I was a lonely child :) I still hum the song to myself whenever I eat them, which is not often since I somehow became allergic to anything with a stone/pit in it when I turned 30….the allergist says it was a hormonal thing. Such a cruel twist of fate, a lifetime of all my favorite fruits denied just when I was ready to begin my culinary adventures. Boo! I am able to eat them in very small amounts and slowly….I just need to watch for allergy symptoms. I will make this for the super bowl party, and live vicariously through others!


  9. Leave it to a pregnant woman to come up with this amazing concoction! I had so much fun eating, Eating, EATING through my 4 pregnancies. Enjoyed every second of it! This looks totally delish!


  10. Made this yesterday. It was delicious!


  11. I made this for my book club group. I should have doubled it because it went in about 15 minutes. Everyone wanted the recipe.
    Soooo good.


  12. This looks yummy, but I have one word of caution for you. This is listed on your site under the Gluten Free section, but blue cheese (including gorgonzola) is not actually gluten free because the bacteria cultures that produce the blue veins in it are actually started and feed with flour and bread. It’s advised by various Celiac and Gluten Intolerance groups that people who need to be gluten free not eat it. That said, it those folks could easily substitute another cheese, like feta, and enjoy this!


  13. Hi Lauren,
    We are doing a guacamole roundup on Friday for Guacamole Day and wondered if we could include this delicious recipe and picture in our post. There would be a link for the recipe to your post along with your blogs name.
    Thanks so much.
