Creamy Chipotle Bacon Avocado Sauce
Avocados are delicious. I don’t think many people will disagree. However, when I was younger and far far less wise (yes I am very wise now…), I did not like avocados. I couldn’t explain why, I just thought they were gross. Literally gross. To this day, I don’t understand my feelings back then. Because like I said, avocados are delicious.
So what if there was a sauce, a delicious sauce, made with avocados? And perhaps some bacon…and maybe even a little spicy, smoky kick? Good news, there is. This creamy chipotle bacon avocado sauce has, well ummm, bacon (duh), chipotle peppers, sour cream, lime and cilantro. It’s really very simple to make. And very good…because avocados are delicious.

First off, when cooking the bacon make sure it gets nice and crispy so it’s easy to crumble into pieces. As for the chipotle pepper, I used just one, but if you want a little more spice, go ahead, throw in another!
So here are your steps: Place ingredients (except bacon) into food processor and blend until a sauce forms. Add bacon and pulse until the bacon is distributed throughout the sauce. Enjoy your delicious concoction.

That’s it. You can’t tell me it wasn’t worth your time. This creamy chipotle bacon avocado sauce is great on so many things. I use it as a dipping sauce for these Southwestern Egg Rolls (coming soon), but it can also be used a a salad dressing, a pasta sauce (try it over zucchini noodles for a healthy kick!) or served over salmon or chicken.
NOTE: Recipe can be easily doubled if more sauce is desired. I understand. It is delicious. Because, well, avocados.
