Author: California Avocado Commission
It’s no secret that I love Avocados in any form, but I think my favorite way to eat them is in guacamole. My St. Patrick’s Day guacamole is chock full of great Irish ingredients like sharp cheddar, carrots, bacon, parsley, and onion. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
  • 3 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and mashed
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • ⅛ tsp. salt
  • ⅛ tsp. fresh ground black pepper
  • ½ cup very finely diced carrots
  • ¼ cup very finely diced red onion
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ¼ jalapeño, seeded and very finely diced (optional)
  • 3 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • ¼ cup very finely chopped parsley
  • 2 oz. Irish cheddar cheese, crumbled
  1. In a large bowl, mash avocado with lemon juice, salt, and pepper.
  2. For a beautiful presentation, leave a small portion of the remaining ingredients out and use them for garnish.
  3. Stir in the carrots, onion, garlic, jalapeño, bacon, parsley, and cheese. Garnish and serve.
