Mark T. Carboni shares his Cookin With Carbo party recipes with Shindigz

Growing up Carbo, I have found the greatest joy being surrounded by great family and friends. Whether it’s a small gathering, or more extravagant themed party, I know that the food and drink you serve will set the tone just as much as the decor.
The best way to make an acquaintance a friend is through amazing food, fun and the ability to be honest and true. Honesty and truth, a mighty powerful combination just like the combination of bacon and avocado. Join me as I open my kitchen, to you, as I share food coupled with fun and a recipe from the Cookin’ with Carbo collection.
This Bacon Avacado Dip will be the hit of your next party!

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.
