Guacamole Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos!

Bacon Wrapped Grilled Jalapenos with Guacamole

Whenever we grill, whether it’s for a few people, a huge crowd, for a football game, a birthday party, or just because; we make cream cheese stuffed grilled jalapenos.  We’ve been making them since Moby Dick was a minnow – I’m talking 17 years or more.  I decided to do something a bit different for this summer gathering … but I’ll get to that in a minute.

FIRST! Thank you to A Southern Fairytale’s amazing sponsor California Avocados for the summer grilling goodies; a new gorgeous new grill, avocados, plates, grilling tools and more!!!  If you follow me on instagram; you saw the bounty, and know they arrived on my birthday! Happy Birthday to me!

As far as I’m concerned, no get together is complete without  The Best Damn Guacamole Ever, and it showed up in more than one way during this feast!

I made one of my favorite appetizers, Grilled Avocados with Black Bean and Corn Pico

The main eats were Grilled burgers with a secret ingredient {fresh avocado mashed in with the extra lean meat adds a healthy fat, and the desired juiciness} that we paired with fritos, refried black beans, smoky cheddar cheese, and topped them with guacamole.

As I said, we’ve been making cream cheese stuffed bacon wrapped jalapenos for about as long as Nathan and I have been together.  I made these with a twist, though.  I left off the cream cheese, stuffed them with The Best Damn Guacamole Ever, and wrapped them up with bacon.

I got one of Nathan’s trademark raised eyebrows that he gives me whenever he’s skeptical of something I’m trying.  I raised mine back and kept on grilling.  Everyone else was intrigued, and it was sort of one of those moments where we all thought: “Duh, Why didn’t I think of doing this before?”

Jalapenos are a must in guacamole, and bacon and avocados are a delicious pair – so how had I never thought to make Guacamole Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos before?!  I swear I could have smacked myself in the head, y’all.

The creaminess of the guacamole, the spicy bite of the jalapenos all wrapped up in smoky, crispy, salty, charred bacon!  YUM!

Even Nathan was impressed.

  1. I’m not sure something this delicious should even be legal Rachel. What a genius idea! I love, love, love avocados and like you could not imagine life without guacamole. This recipe defies description. I think it should be mandatory for every tailgate party and football watching party this fall!
