We love this wonderful best camping guacamole recipe. Camping and dip just go together like football and beer.
This camping guacamole recipe always goes camping with me. We love the taste of fresh guacamole with crunchy salt chips. We go one or two steps further by adding bacon! If you haven’t tried bacon in your guacamole before than you are missing out because it’s delightful. This recipe calls for bacon mixed in the guacamole and them to top it with a few crispy crumbles right on top so you know you are getting the good stuff.
This amazing recipe can be made in minutes and is devoured just as quickly around a crowd. If you have never tired amazing guacamole then you could go down to your local Mom and Pop Mexican restaurant and order some so you can taste match your recipe at home. And feel free to add or take away any ingredients that you don’t like. This recipe can be made spicer or creamer just with a few tweaks.
I always feel so successful when I’m out camping and I made a batch of this scrumptious guacamole recipe for my family. They love the taste and I love how easy and healthy it is for them.
How do you pick a ripe avocado?
The hardest part of this recipe is choosing ripe avocados. When you’re at the store staring at that pile of avocados how do you choose? Start with the color the darker the avocado skin the older the avocado. Next give the vegetable a light squeeze, if there is a little give or softness to the avocado that indicates it’s ripe. You can then remover or just smell under the stem of the avocado. It should smell like a ripe avocado.
