Just when you thought guacamole couldn't get any better... The addition of strawberry and bacon to a simple guacamole recipe makes this an impressive dish to bring to any party or enjoy at home with a skinny margarita!

I first tried this dish at my favorite Mexican restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama called El Barrio

They often have a seasonal guacamole and most recently, we decided to try their offering of the day and it happened to be a strawberry bacon guacamole that was the perfect balance of salty and sweet.

For whatever reason, I never thought to replicate it but fortunately, one of my friends Lindsay, served it at her Cinco De Mayo party and I NEEDED the recipe and knew I had to share it on here.

Enjoy!
