I've had lots of guacamole and this is truly the best. Of all the things I've cooked for guests, this recipe is is one of the best received! It's the bacon that makes the difference! I adapted this from New Best Recipes. If you make guacamole ahead of time...*Guacamole can be covered with plastic wrap, pressed directly onto the surface of the mixture, and refrigerated up to 1 day. Remove the guacamole to room temperature, removing the plastic wrap at the last moment, before serving.
