Bacon and Avocado Dip
3 ripe avocados
1 clove of garlic – minced
1 small lime – juiced
6 slices of bacon – cooked and diced
3 T of fresh chopped cilantro
Heavy dash of salt and pepper
Slice the avocados from top to bottom and around to the top. Hold avocado in your hand and turn one side left and one side right and it will open. Remove the core and keep (just one).
Scoop the avocado from the shell and place in large bowl. Add garlic, lime, salt and pepper. With the back of a spoon. Smush the avocado against the bowl. It should be somewhat chunky. Next mix circular to incorporate all the ingredients. Drop in the bacon and cilantro and mix again.
Place the core in the center, place in refrigerate and serve within an hour of making for best flavors. (Wrap tightly or spray the top with a non stick spray to prevent discoloration).
The passion for cooking was inherited through Carbo’s maternal grandmother who inspired Mark T. Carboni (Carbo) to bring joy to friends and family through the act of preparing food and celebrations. Carbo and his partner travel to sample and learn regional and cultural differences in food. The experiences allow him to make new and exciting recipes that can be reproduce in your own home using every day products and equipment in a short amount of time. Carbo provides private cooking lessons, authored his first cookbook and keeps a highly interactive Facebook page that showcases food-talk and fun. www.facebook.com/carbocooks.
