Ingredients
  

  • 5 Haas avocados
  • 1 head roasted garlic paste
  • 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1/4 cup Bleu cheese
  • 8 strips bacon
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 oz tequila
  • 2 Roma tomatoes finely diced and seeded
  • 1 jalapeno pepper finely diced with seeds reserved
  • 3 cups cilantro roughly chopped
  • 2 tsp cumin powder

Instructions
 

  • DIRECTIONS:
    Peel avocados and remove pits. Place in a large food processor.
    In a separate mortar and pestle, place the ROASTED garlic, one each of the piles of red and sweet onion, and the seeds of the jalapeno. Crush these ingredients into a smooth paste with the sea salt. You won’t have to work too hard on this one. 
    Scoop the paste into the food processor with the avocados. Use a silicone scraper so you get everything;
    Toss the finely chopped BACON into the food processor along with the BLEU CHEESE crumbles, the tequila and the finely diced jalapeños;
    Throw the cilantro into the food processor. Don’t worry about throwing away the stems - you won’t be able to tell they’re there when you’re finished. 
    Pulse these ingredients to your desired smoothness. 
    Once you have the texture that you want, scrape the guacamole into a large bowl. 
    You can now add the lemon and lime juices, the cubed tomatoes, the roughly chopped bacon, and the remaining onions. Stir the guacamole just enough to see the chunks of flavor.
    Cover your bowl with plastic wrap, placing the pits of the avocado inside and resting the plastic wrap on the guacamole to keep from browning. 
    Refrigerate at least an hour before serving to allow the flavors and the heat to meld.
