Sometime back I had tried a new recipe on line that was for a novel breakfast idea. That recipe had toast topped with avocado, bacon and maple syrup.

I had never tried that flavor combination before but I was intrigued. I also have this thing about “bucket list” foods that if I have not tried something, I should at least try to eat it once, so I was instantly game to make this recipe. And I am glad I did because the flavor combination was a revelation to me, and one I have made since in this recipe for guacamole, and as well, in another recipe for bacon- avocado pancakes.

In this recipe for guacamole, I wanted to try something a little Tex-Mex, and wondered how this combination would work as a snack. I already knew the flavors of the corn tortilla chips would go well having eaten sweeter types of corn bread. And since I had everything on hand I needed: avocados that needed using, bacon, and maple syrup, as well as a bag of chips, thought to give it a try.

It works well for me as I suspected- lightly sweet and smoky,with the creaminess of avocado. It is not overly sweet so don’t worry about that. It just works, and is something I think everyone would enjoy.

Do give it a try!
