Pesto Bacon Guacamole

This Pesto Bacon Guacamole is such a fun way to make guacamole!

Hey guys!

So I have taken a little bird under my wing, and her name is Sara. She’s actually my youngest (age 22… she’s a baby) sister-in-law, to teach her the ins and outs of blogging. She is super awesome in the kitchen and I’ve invited her here today to share her first recipe with you guys! I helped her whip up this amazing Pesto Bacon Guacamole, and I think you guys are going to be totally impressed with the guac and with Sara.

Please give her a warm welcome!

Hi Friends! I’m so excited to share this recipe with you!

Pesto Bacon Guacamole

The story behind this recipe is pretty normal. I usually have my best ideas under a little, but not too much pressure. This little brain baby came from a guacamole contest for a monthly employee meeting at work, and the winner of said contest would receive a gift card (woot!). Now usually, they have a drawing of some sort at these meetings. Since I never win things by chance (for reals, who does?), I decided to take matters into my own hands with this guac contest. The judges of the contest were the administration, a bunch of men types. So I thought, men like bacon. That ruled out fruity guacamole.

I also thought a tad of basil pesto would be a nice touch. It was amazing! And…….I won the contest! It was fun to make again for this post. And even more fun to take pictures of! And even MORE fun to eat!
