#GuacSquad12 ~ Grilled Corn and Bacon Guacamole


Some very amazing guacamole recipes are being shared with you as part of #GuacSquad12 to introduce Casabella's new Guac-Lock (and give you some fantastic ideas on ways to spruce up your next batch of guacamole)!


When I was brainstorming ideas for which recipe to make and share today I stumbled across a roasted corn and bacon recipe and was hooked. I grilled two juicy ears on the grill over high heat for about 20 minutes, rotating once. I baked my bacon in the oven, and when everything was cooked and cooled, combined the ingredients and voila! This recipe comes together very quickly and is incredibly tasty! I love the addition (and the convenience) of the lightly dried herbs from Gourmet Garden. Their products are seriously incredible. I've been lucky enough to work with them a few times over the years, and love having their products in my refrigerator and freezer at all times!


The Guac-Lock allows you to keep your batch of delicious fresh guacamole... well, fresh! It has a unique system that allows you to push the guac up and flush to the lid, pressing all the air out, then sealing it shut to keep nothing but freshness in. It's a fantastic product, and makes a good serving dish as well!

Melissa's Produce provided some amazingly delicious and ripe avocados for our event as well - they were devoured pretty much immediately in my house.


I am envisioning a healthy spread of this guac on a piece of toast - soon, very soon. It only seems right... maybe with a fried egg on top... oh the fun you can have with this yummy and versatile dish!
