Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.


  1. Put avocado into a medium mixing bowl and mash with a fork, spoon or potato masher.
  2. Add remaining ingredients and gently stir to combine.

Chef’s tip: if guacamole isn’t being served right away, reserve bacon and add just before serving so it remains crisp. Also, place plastic wrap directly on top of guacamole to prevent browning.

*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
